Next is EXERCISE 3d: Verbal and Non-verbal Backchanneling
Identify a person you know (friend or family member) who tends to tell lengthy stories on the phone.
Make a call to this person and prompt him/her to get into a long monologue.
This can be accomplished by asking a “hot button” or open-ended question that would trigger a lengthy response from him/her.
Remain silent during the narrative. Do not say anything or make any noises.
See how long the person continues before stopping and asking if you are still there or if you are following the conversation.
Now try the same experiment with a signed conversation and notice when a signer stops their remarks, due to lack of backchannel from a listener.
Use the space below to report what you observed.
This response will be reviewed and graded after submission.
