    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As hard as this course was for me, I believe it truly helped to hone a weakness of mine. I scored the highest in my class when it came to test anxiety, but I still got an A overall and learned a lot in the process.

    Course highlights:

    Sometimes I feel a teacher makes the course. Mrs. Elferdink gave me plenty of feedback, which tremendously helped me to grow in my presentation techniques. In regards to highlights, we were able to make plenty of presentations using video recording, which I think is a useful asset to learn in our times where sharing media via videocaming yourself is quite popular to do. The most important thing I learned was how to control my mind to relax. There are many techniques out there, study and use em!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Think fluidly, like water...learn to flow with your speech and use your surroundings to your advantage. Keep calm, and carry on!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mary takes a personal interest in her students. Most everyone comes into this course with apprehension and at a different level in public speaking but she makes you feel at ease and that you can excel.

    Course highlights:

    This course has made me a much better public speaker. I have learned to graduate from a manuscript to an outline to notecards.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice practice practice. Do not wait until the last minute to put together your speeches.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor made the course great! It was a different experience and you were graded on overall performance.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that it is not what is said that matters, however, it is about how you say it and present it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    PRACTICE and prepare yourself for your speeches. Do not wing it.
