    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I tried my hardest in this class and was met with constant criticism but no advice on how to improve.

    Course highlights:

    This course introduces the principles of and practice in composition and presentation of speeches. Topics include speaker and audience relationship, organization of speeches, active listening skills, use of appropriate language, useof technology as an enhancement of speech, managing speech anxiety and developing a natural verbal and nonverbal delivery style.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    work hard. use notecards. When speaking, hold notecards sideways and do NOT slam them when finished. Use white notecards so that they are not distracting. Speak loudly! Don't bother buying the book, you'll use it in the first week and never again.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course for students to begin to feel comfortable speaking in front of groups with a prepared speech format.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I learned the ability to "shake off" any mistakes that I made while speaking. It is only natural to mess up, but how we handle it is up to us.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Relax! And have fun! It can be stressful to speak in front of people who you don't know, but the more you choose to relax and view the course as a fun exercise, the easier it becomes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would absolutely recommend this class to students. Dr. Jennings actually cares about his students and ensures they know the material.

    Course highlights:

    Public speaking was one of my biggest fears until this class. He understood that not everyone was comfortable with public speaking. He taught us skills to ensure we gave an effective, and relevant speech. He also gave us freedom to chose what we spoke about and what presentation method we wanted to use. While we gave two of the speeches, he recorded us. This showed us how our body language effected our speech in a positive or negative way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend the students begin their speeches as soon as they are assigned. This will help to alleviate some of the stress. The due dates sneak up fast!
