Speech 100 is an introductory course and involves a lot of work. You will find that the principles we discuss in class will help you in other classes, work, family and social situations. Remember: you get out of it what you put into it, in other words, you are responsible for your own learning. They are able because they think they are able. -Virgil Course Objectives: 1. To understand the impact communication has on our daily lives and become a more effective communicator. 2. To become a more careful and critical thinker and communicator, both as a speaker and a listener. 3. To deliver strategies for an effective speech or presentation. 4.

THE NON-NEGOTIABLES OUCH! Attendance Policy: In a class about communication it is very important that you are present to…communicate! Therefore, I have an attendance policy. This is how it works: You may miss FOUR classes without the absences affecting your grade. Use your absences wisely. I do not differentiate between excused and unexcused absences. Every absence after the 4th will lower your FINAL grade by a tenth of a point. For example, say you were earning a 3.3 in the course and you missed 6 classes; your final grade would be a 3.1. If you miss more than 10 classes I will encourage you to drop the course. Coming Late & Leaving Early : Attendance means being present in the class for the entire scheduled class meeting, not just some part of it. I will note lateness and leaving early and it will have a negative effect on your grade.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
