    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course impacted me more than any of the other courses that I've taken this far at BHSU. The class has helped me feel more prepared for all of my other classes. I wish I had done this class first, before any of my others! Now I can feel comfortable and confident giving presentations in class when previously I had only been used to a tiny homeschool environment. Mrs. Greer also taught us plenty of skills that will be useful even outside of college! Not only was her class fantastic, but she really helped me feel like I was really a part of BHSU for the first time. She made me feel at home and welcome, and I feel like I can talk to her even outside of class. Out of all of the Gen-Ed classes required, this class I believe to be far and away the most memorable and worthwhile.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to make smooth and effective presentations and some of the psychology behind what methods really grab people the quickest and longest. In class Mrs. Greer also taught us how to use Prezi effectively, Prezi being a huge leg up from Powerpoint with much better attention grabbing capabilities and a more polished look. She also taught us the best way to present slides with our speech, that being a minimalistic and non-distracting way to supplement the speech to create pictures in the listener's mind, not just using them as if they were notecards for the speech. I also learned how to research and cite sources, both on paper and in a speech, learning even more about this from her in my speech class than I did in my English Composition class in the same semester!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Loosen up and relax! As a shy introvert who cried from the fear of just talking to the teacher after class with a question, I can attest to the fact that this class will be the best thing to ever happen to you! The more that you are afraid of speaking, the more impactful this class will be! Mrs. Greer dealt with the same issues as other fearful students back in her college days, and she knows exactly how to help!
