    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class teaches effective ways of speaking and listening. You learn how to give different types of speeches. Some examples include, demonstration, argument, informative, etc. Research is done before each speech. You also learn how to adapt to your audience. Before taking this class, I would get very nervous to get up in front of the class or anyone and present. I am no longer like that; I enjoy sharing my ideas and showing the class information I have found about different topics.

    Course highlights:

    The best part about this class was there was no cramming for tests. He only gives a few quizzes and he goes over everything very thoroughly before hand. If you have an A at the end of the course then you don't have to take the final. You don't have to memorize any speech you give. The longest speech is three minutes long. This class made me feel way more confident with myself and my ways of thinking. Mr. Holmquest makes each and every student feel special and important.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every document thoroughly. There aren't any "dead" words in his document and every word is quiz worthy. Partake in the discussions in class, so you don't have to take a quiz over the material discussed. If he thinks the discussion goes well enough he doesn't have a quiz for that material. Attend every class session so you don't fall behind. Every day there is a lot of things to learn and it is a difficult class to make up work in because most of what you learn is through discussions.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class focused on getting your message out in a simple and effective manner. He teaches you the skills of effective speaking as well as listening. You also learn how to adapt to your audience. Overall, it was a class that was very comfortable and you could be yourself and show your classmates who you really are.

    Course highlights:

    This class didn't have lots of homework. If you have an A at the end of the course then you don't have to take the final. You never had to memorize any of your speeches. This class made me more confident with myself and my opinions. It made me realize that everyone is special as well as important.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    One thing that I advice is, make sure and read the documents thoroughly. Every word he puts in his documents are important. I also say, partake in the class discussions. There is a lot of discussion in class and if they go well he doesn't give you a quiz over the material you talked about.
