    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely hate speaking in public, but Brad Bailey made it seem okay, and not so terrifying. When he is teaching, he is in his element. He makes you want to listen, and be as great as he is in front of everyone. I learned so much about writing, and speaking in front of people in his weekend course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were Brad Bailey, and the fact that we only had to go for three weekends. Taking a weekend course might seem scary because they are so quick and compact, but Mr. Bailey did an excellent job at teaching you everything you needed to know about writing a speech in the short time he was given. I ended his class with an A; I never thought I could get an A in public speaking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you focus in his class, and do not forget to bring you A-game. His class is about being both creative, and practical. You want to be able to think outside of the box, but also make your speech relatable to everyone in the room. You only have a week to write each speech, therefor, you must spend your time wisely.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course with this professor. This course helped me become more comfortable speaking to a group of people. It also taught me how to organize and prepare speeches.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to present myself before a group of people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell other students not to go into the class nervous and fearful. The more nervous you are makes it much more difficult to present the speech, so go into the class relaxed and calm and you will have a better outcome.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend taking Public Speaking because not only do you learn how to talk in front of others, but also how to find accurate research, which allows you to learn more and new information, and how to create a speech.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was seeing the reactions of the people who you spoke to. Sometimes you teach the audience something new or inspire them one way or another. It was another highlight when they tell you that you did a good job, that makes you proud. I learned from this course to not wait until the last minute do to assignments, you must start early and give yourself plenty of time to prepare.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I suggest everyone to take a deep breath, and tell yourself that you got this, you have done it before (even if you have not) and you know exactly what you are doing. This builds up some confidence. I would also suggest that if any student has to put their own audience together that you plan to speak to them ahead of time rather than last minute because you may not get the amount of people you need.
