Our Classroom Some people find public speaking an uncomfortable or stressful experience. I want our classroom to be a positive and fun environment for you, and practice is the key to improving your skills. We will have opportunities throughout the semester for you to give impromptu, less formal speeches. If you have any anxiety about speaking, please see me, and we can develop ways to work it out. Inclusivity Statement Our classroom provides us a unique opportunity to get to know one another more fully, and to build on and explore ideas generated in class discussion. Building a positive, inclusive class environment requires respecting each other, your instructor, and the learning process. We argue ideas in this classroom, not each other. Refrain from using any language, presenting any material, and wearing any clothing that reflects bias against any individual, group, or culture.

    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.
