Riverside City College Communication Studies 1: Elements of Public Speaking Section: Date/Time: Location:_________ “If I had to go back to college again—knowing what I know today. I’d concentrate on two areas: Learning how to write and speak before an audience. Nothing is more important in life than to communicate effectively.” President Gerald R. Ford Instructor: Estrella Romero, PhD email: Estrella.Romero@rcc.edu Office: Portable 6F (Behind Landis Auditorium) phone: (951) 222-8288 The BEST way to reach me is by email!

Website http://academic.rcc.edu/romero This website is personalized for my communication classes and has helpful information on the course, public speaking tips as well as assignment packets. Lecture notes/slides are available and I strongly encourage you to print out the notes before hand and bring to class with any questions. You will find that my lecture power point presentations have “missing information” and are very simple. It is important that you print these out before class and come prepared to take additional/detailed notes. Course Description Learn how to prepare, present and evaluate a variety of speeches.
