    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a great instructor and the course is relevant in life.

    The speeches were actually fun to do. I also learned that I thought I wasn't nervous for public speaking but I actually do get a bit nervous.

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take the accelerated course as it is a lot packed into such a short time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The grading system is excellent. It focuses more on the second half of the semester, when none should have as much knowledge about public speaking, at that level, so as to succeed. Professor Meyer is a fair grader, and also gives great tips without giving the answers, per se.

    Course highlights:

    The speaking days. I was never much of a public speaker, so this course would be most difficult. Now, I feel my confidence rising with every speech.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Trust the system. Professor Meyer constructs it this way for a reason. My first speech I got an 8/10 (80%), but was nervous as heck. My second speech was worse, grade wise, but my confidence was so much better. I just did not focus more on the rubric. My third speech, 30/30 (100%). I was confident and hit everything on the rubric. And I'm not saying this will happen for everyone because you still have to work hard. Just stick with it, keep working, and the sky will be the limit!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because everyone needs to be able to speak in front of people. Jaime Meyer was a really good professor to teach this class because he went to school for a public speaking degree. He knew so many helpful techniques to get over getting stage fright, speaking clearly, organizing your thoughts to they flow and make sense. By comparing your speeches from the beginning of the course to the end of the course you could really see an improvement in the quality of the speech, the length of the speech and also the confidence you had in the front of the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me was being able to talk about things I am passionate about and learning on how to tell people about them in a logical way. This course also taught you how to listen and actually take in what other speakers are say. We learned so much about our peers and their outlook on life. It was a very interesting class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend not putting of doing the outlines and research till the last minute. Work on your speeches a little each day. Also, to practice your speech many times before hand, until you feel comfortable saying it without looking at your notes too many times.
