Video for interpersonal comm: Changing face

Simpsons: Season 7, episode 17

This episode features a couple of great scenes that show changing face. Mr. Smithers takes a vacation, leaving Homer to tend to Mr. Burns’ needs.

Under the pressure of Burns’ unreasonable demands (including a very funny scene shown in picture), Homer snaps and punches Burns. But rather than be angry, Mr. Burns undergoes a dramatic change and becomes self-reliant.

Several short scenes can be edited together to show this change in just a few minutes of class time. It would be a great lead-off to a discussion about changing face.

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
