Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I really loved this class! Mrs. Foreman was such a great teacher. A lot of people in my class had a phobia of public speaking and Mrs. Foreman's personality really helped ease their minds. We had a lot of practice with public speaking without being overloaded. Mrs. Foreman structured her class very well and it her teaching style was incredibly easy to understand. I also appreciated how she was very specific with her feedback. I never felt overwhelmed with feedback and I always felt that the tips she gave me to work on were manageable and achievable.
Public speaking has never been a strong point of mine. I am comfortable in front of people but I never knew before how to give a proper speech. Mrs. Foreman taught us how to structure our speeches in a way that they flowed well and were properly organized, but also taught us how to add in humor and make our speeches relatable.

Advice for students:
Don't wait until the last minute to write your speech! I did this for one of my speeches and I was not comfortable at all when I was giving it. Also, practice your speeches out loud, in the mirror to yourself, or to a friend or a classmate. This helped me immensely! Sometimes we were given time limits and it really helped me know if I needed to lengthen my speech, slow down, or eliminate a talking point. This will also help you get more comfortable with the flow of your speech and knowing what the next talking point is instead of being glued to your notes.
