    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a really fascinating course, and was a really enjoyable Gen-Ed to fulfill the speech requirement. This particular class was good because it had a lot of different approaches to how to give speeches, and Sonya was entertaining, making you want to go back to class each day.

    Course highlights:

    I saw myself improving in my own speaking techniques from being in this course. Sonya does an excellent job at allowing the students to really bond with each other so that they are comfortable giving speeches in front of one another.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    She grades a bit stricter than other speech professors, but does a good job. Studying a bit will help prepare for the quizzes that she gives, and those are a make-or-break part of your grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class because Dr. Greer is very outgoing and energetic. She makes the class feel comfortable. The environment is great and makes giving speeches a little easier. She does a lot of icebreaker activities so the other students don't seem like strangers, making it easier to talk in front of them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to make outlines work for me and how to organize a speech so it is easy for me to deliver it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make your outlines in fragments. Don't try to write it all out and have the speech in essay form. Listen to her advice, she knows what she's talking about.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Greer is a passionate, infectious teacher of this "gen-ed". Generally students like to overlook general education credit courses - and just want to get them "out of the way." In this class you will have fun, but also learn very important skills to present yourself and ideas effectively in a group setting. Public speaking is always challenging but a great tool to have in your career life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what a great tool Pintrest is in education - public speaking, social media etc. I also learned how to use Prezi correctly and other Apps in social media. I learned the proper rules for different types of speeches - persuasion, introduction, demonstration etc. and how to best learn to work with a group.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay engaged and take the advice Dr. Greer gives you - she knows her stuff!
