    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it helps college students gain confidence when speaking in front of crowds and peers. This can help with other class presentations as well as in the real world as well, such as board meetings and other areas where speaking is necessary.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to actually look other people in the eyes while speaking to them. I also learned how to have better body posture while giving speeches, instead of slouching all the time or swaying back and forth. My stuttering also decreased as I kept doing more speeches due to my increase in confidence. The teacher I had, Ms. Peters, was also very helpful in giving detailed feedback on the speeches content and the overall presentation of the speech which allowed me to be better prepared for next time. We also did different types of speeches to understand a variety of speaking styles that could happen in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always make sure that you are prepared to give your speech. Not being prepared will lead you into a frozen stuttering mess in front of your peers which no one wants to witness. Also, be thorough with your speech content, don't be vague, have plenty of details to allow the audience to understand what you are talking about.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course was not difficult by any means, and since it was an honors course we did not have a mid term. As long as you take your in class speeches seriously and practice them beforehand, you will do well in the course.

    Course highlights:

    The group project were we were forced to come up with an improvement for campus, and then we were expected to pitch it to the correct faculty member was the highlight of the course. I not only felt as if I had the opportunity to improve campus, but the faculty member actually accepted our proposal.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice your speeches beforehand so everything is fleshed out walking into your presentation.
