Why Kids Need to Learn about Gender and Sexuality
Assignment 5: Individual Reflection
Why kids need to learn about gender and sexuality by Lindsay Amer
The presenter is very confident with the message she is passing across and he seems to
understand the topic very well. The presenter is very composed and has the information clear in
her mind. The topic presented is very important especially because it is about gender and
sexuality. The presenter communicates effectively through songs and metaphor as she helps to
create more empathetic adults.
I am specifically appealed to the use of songs and metaphor in the communication that is
especially directed to kids. This makes the audience understand the message. I am also appealed
by the gestures used by the presenter such as body language that rhyme with the words uttered.
I am not appealed to the voice of the presenter especially when singing the introduction song.
Though the message is very interesting, the voice is terrible
The use of body language relates strongly to my communication preference. I like to plan my
communication where the body language will clearly communicate the ideas that I present.
Additionally, I like the use of proverbs, similes, and metaphors when communicating and
depending on the audience. However, I too do not have a good voice hence I may not do very
well in a song.
The use of the findings of the American Paediatric Academy of Paediatrics to clearly explain a
point by the presenter supports communication intelligence.
The presenter has good communication skills and knows how to relate body language with the
content of the message intended. However, use of demonstrations such as pictorial and visual
demonstrations would improve her communication effectiveness. People understand the intended
message more clearly when it is well demonstrated
