  • Message: the meanings we share: verbal and non-verbal

    • Share the topic

    • “What is my body saying that I am not aware of?”

  • Channel—what carries the message to the listener: Air? T.V.? Radio? P.A.?

  • Feedback—this makes communication transactional

    • “needs to know what they are doing well or not so well.”

    • “judge audience involvement and understanding”

    • “environment and possible distractions”

    • “I want to know how to speak clearly & not have anything that gets in the way of the idea I am trying to get across”

  • Culture—the larger culture within which the situation takes place

    • “I want to learn to adapt to different audiences”
