Non-Verbal Communication: The Birds

100 points


In this Non-Verbal Communication five-minute mini-lesson example, there is no dialogue in the traditional sense. You can still understand how the characters are feeling, just by listening to their voice tone and observing their body language. Although this movie has no spoken parts, it reveals the power of non-verbal communication. Important Note:  Please do not align the chapter pages in our textbook with those referred to by the student narrator of this video.

So often when we communicate, we think more about WHAT we’re trying to say to the other person, when really, we need to think about HOW we say it to the other person.

A lot of good ideas in arguments / tough conversations get lost because we are distracted by how angry the other person is saying these words. We feel attacked. We infer meaning beyond just the actual words being said.
