    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was an EASY introductory course to public speaking. There was very few tests and the majority of points came from in-class presentations. Prof. Teal was not looking for perfection but improvement from where a person may have started their journey. She graded very fairly and just wanted to see students make strides outside of their comfort zone to grow themselves in the course. She was a good professor to take if you're nervous about this course.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed getting together in groups and doing impromptu speeches. I also liked picking out my speech topics. For my final, there was a take home portion of long answer questions that were very easy to answer. I learned the fundamentals of public speaking.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give yourself time to make an outline for your speeches as well as a good power point. It was obvious which students made their power points just minutes before class versus others. If you are going to take this class, have a printed out version of your speech to take up to the front of the room with you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a public speaking class and it is so important to be able to speak well, and not be nervous in front of people.

    Course highlights:

    It brought me out of my shell, and made it so I was not as nervous getting up in front of people to speak.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you are prepared, and practice makes perfect.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class to prepare you for public speaking. Professor Sutton is a great educator and is very supportive of his students. He creates a comfortable environment that enables you to put your best foot forward and nearly eliminates any stress related to talking in front of a group of people. I highly recommend this class, and even more so, this instructor!

    Course highlights:

    We started off doing group presentations to build confidence, and then slowly tapered off to doing presentations on our own. I was able to build confidence in public speaking, and learned the fundamentals on to how to successfully build a presentation, and present it in front of a group of people.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to the instructor, follow his tips, and remember that you are all in this together.
