    This class was tough.

    I learned how to effectively communicate with other people and give meaningful speeches effectively. We used US history to help us and to grow

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Palmer is a passionate, entertaining man. He is more soft spoken than many, however he is very knowledgeable. In this course he teaches many aspects as to WHY we communicate the way we do and why it is important. He also teaches many ways for which one can improve themselves in daily life, then gives periodical speeches and quality feedback on how to improve your speaking skills in front of a larger group. And as a bonus, the Exams are not difficult at all if you spend time studying the provided Study Guide provided by the Professor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned my personal weaknesses in public speaking, the relationship of humans to God's character, the important qualities in education, and how to speak in front of others while appearing more calm than I truly was.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the Study Guide!! Always revise a speech/paper at least once or twice before you turn it in. Never let the presentation be the first time you read your speech aloud. It is obvious when you do this.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was absolutely amazing! The professor was quite helpful and fair in grading. The assignments were so much fun. They were challenging, but the kind of challenging that one finds enjoyable not frustrating. There were several group assignments, which I usually wouldn't like because I tend to be shy, but I actually enjoyed them all. I found that all the assignments were well picked and organized; none of them felt out of place or random. I highly recommend taking this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned various things about human communication. This course taught me about relationship cycles, self-disclosure, and male vs. female communication, all of which were very interesting to learn about. I even learned practical lessons, such as how to conduct myself at a job interview, and I even had to do a mock interview. I also learned a whole lot about speeches - how to pick a topic, write an outline, sort resources, conduct interviews, learn about your audience, use your pitch, tone, and volume, use visual aids and statistics, how to inform, and how to persuade. This was probably the most enjoyable and applicable course I've taken this year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you do need to apply yourself and stay focused/committed even though it might seem very easy. I did relax on one assignment thinking the standards weren't so high and I got a low grade (not a terrible grade, just lower than what I wanted).
