At the beginning of class, we watched a short YouTuber video of Taylor Mali talking about the importance of speaking with clarity and conviction instead of ambiguity and uncertainty.
But how do we PRACTICE clear speech?
To emphasize the idea of clear communication, we discussed the elements of a sentence, basically, SUBJECT and PREDICATE.
A subject of a sentence is a NOUN or pronoun.
A predicate is the verb. (Don't forget that there is more than one kind of verb: action, helping, linking).
For fun (and... oh, yeah, education) we watched some videos on grammar parts of speech: remember Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny? They had pronoun trouble, my friend!
Have a great day!
