    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Stern is an easily likeable person who is extremely thorough in his classes. Not only is his teaching easy to follow, but he also makes the class extremely interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to appropriately get across the subject I am speaking about and balance out my personality and the important topics I want to inform people about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions, never be afraid to be creative, and practice keeping your speech time regulated and watching the limits he gives you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I believe it helped me a lot with becoming aware of how I sound while speaking in front of many people.

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course I learned multiple things to be aware of while speaking, for a few examples, word choice, posture, "filler" words, and many others!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do it! But don't slack on the work, do NOT wait until last minute to make your speeches, you will not be prepared to present your speech to your best ability, and it will show.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it was a wonderful learning tool for me. I was able to interact with many different students as we worked on improving our public speaking tools. Mr. Boucher was very knowledgeable and comfortable in his teaching. He allowed questions and discussion if needed and also placed a good deal of emphasis on peer feedback.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to prepare many different types of speeches like persuasive and informative. We also did a creative speech in which you used an object as an analogy throughout the speech. We learned about the difference between a writing outline and a speaking outline and how to effectively prepare both.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't sign up for it if you aren't in love with public speaking and prepared for a challenge. Mr. Boucher will challenge you to improve and you can't coast through this class. However, if you are willing to put the work into it, it will be a great class.
