Professor Ritchie is obviously experienced in her field. She teachers higher level communication classes as well as COMM 1101. She isn't a super tough grader as long as you look at the outline for the speeches and follow what that says. She seems like she can be biased at times, but for the most part as long as you keep your phone out of view and follow the directions on assignments, it should be an easy, yet boring, course.
I have learned how to structure a speech a lot more formally. I never knew that there was a method to the madness, because in high school I pretty much would just wing my speech, but Professor Ritchie taught me that there are certain components needed to fit different types of speeches, which will be extremely useful in the future for my career.

Advice for students:
Like I've said before, just follow the directions, keep your phone away, and don't forget to hand her your outline BEFORE the speech! A couple of students tried to give her their outline after their speech and she wouldn't accept it. Just make sure you listen!
