    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Noland is a phenomenal professor and makes public speaking so much fun - yes, fun!! She also doesn't vomit lectures either - she plays thought-provoking videos (usually from current events) that show us what to do and what not to do in a speech, takes breaks in between reviewing chapters to play review games, and always lets us know if something is going to be on the test that she is going over. Great test review.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to carry myself, organize an idea and then present it, and to slow down and speak clearly when I speak. A highlight of this course would definitely be when my teacher said that I was the first student ever to get all fifty questions right on her first exam! Highlights regarding the class in general are Professor Noland's fun and outgoing personality, encouragement, and her test review games.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Professor Noland knows where you are - she knows that you're scared and don't like speaking in front of others. She WANTS to give you a good grade and wants you to do well in her class and does everything possible to help you get there. You're not alone in this course. Noland will definitely say this many times in class but it's so true - practice your speech out loud and in front of others who aren't afraid to critique you BEFORE presenting it in class. You will feel much more prepared and will be familiar with any bad habits you may tend to do and can learn to adjust before your actual speech.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    There are not many people I know who actually enjoy public speaking. For me, I'm decent at it, but I still get really nervous, so I was apprehensive about this class, but Professor Noland did a phenomenal job with it, and made everyone feel really comfortable. It was actually one of my favorite classes I've ever taken.

    Course highlights:

    I am much more comfortable with speaking in front of people and having eyes on me now. I particularly enjoyed an exercise she did on acceptance speeches where all the students were given another student to present an award to and the receiving student had to give a thank you speech, came very much in handy at my high school graduation! :)

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Buy the book. You'll need it for quizzes, and as long as you skim it, you'll have the answers. Show up to class (duh), she notices who is there and who isn't and she'll call you out on it. Also, don't procrastinate when it comes to the speeches, the more you practice, the more comfortable you are with the speech come show time.
