A Few Big Assignments
Pretty easy, overall.
Due to the class being an honors section, you will feel less pressure during your speeches. Also, Professor Dave is very comical and a real portrayal of how public speaking can affect an audience. I never once thought he was unsure of what he was doing because he always spoke with purpose, even if it was in one of his comical voices.
I learned how to effectively construct a speech outline for an informative speech, a persuasive speech, and an epideictic speech. In addition, I learned how to combine student responses from surveys as well as valid information from sources into my speeches. The format of speeches Professor Bollinger stressed that we use is a unique tool that I will be able to remember and use in any future speech I give.

Advice for students:
When choosing a topic for any of the speeches you give in class, make sure you are interested in the topic. If you aren't, it will clearly show in your presentation and will definitely bore your audience. Also, be sure to add life to your speech, either with a visual aide or with changing the tone or inflection of your voice, to prevent losing your audience.
