    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Was a great class that made me feel more confident when speaking in front of large groups of people. I feel fairly confident when I did speeches in that class and now I can feel prepared when someone asks me to do a speech.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the funny times we had and the somewhat serious but light hearted debates we had about people's topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to get the outlines for the speeches done ahead of time and to remember that practice makes perfect but there isn't such a thing as over-practicing.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved COMM111. At first, I hated public speaking and it made me nervous. My instructor wiped my anxiety away by creating a comfortable classroom dynamic. She made it more personal to students and relatable in a way that made most of us realize speaking in public was nothing to sweat about.

    Course highlights:

    I found enjoyment doing the speeches because we had enough time to think about what are topics would be and Kriste really helped us organize our speeches. Also the feedback form the students was very crucial to my success in that class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you take this course, try to focus on getting better. Don't focus on being anxious or ways to get over anxiety - this just makes it worse. Focus on what little changes you can make to improve your speeches and your topics and you'll be fine. Millions of people can do it, so can you!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because the teacher is awesome at teaching. She makes sure you understand what is expected and she goes through the course content thoroughly.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is how to present various types of Speeches using different outlines .I learned how to present a speech using unique outlines tailored to the type of speech I was presenting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Send your outlines to her before you perform your speech.She will look it over and give you advice .Then you correct your errors.This gives you a higher grade on presentation day.
