    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I was worried about this class coming into it, and it got easier as class went along. You have to do a total of 4 speeches. Also, the professor will help you if you need assistance, through meetings or after class. She mainly grades on delivery of the speech, and content. Also, she makes you write outlines for every speech, which helps you place your ideas in order for when you go to speak.

    Course highlights:

    I know now how to organize speeches, the importance of delivery and enthusiasm, and also to not be so nervous in front of people.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The major thing I would say to keep in mind, is that the audience is not worried about if you appear nervous, even if you notice it, they most likely will not. They are focused on content, so delivery is key.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is so much fun! You have to make sure to do the projects, they are a huge percentage of your grade. Practice in front of your friends or family before you go to class with your speech! Stay on topic for what the speech needs to be about!!!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to properly speak in front of a group of people at a college level. You will learn from others what not to do while speaking in front of a crowd, and what you do need to do.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say practice speaking in front of friends and family before in front of your teacher or class. If you aren't prepared you're going to get points off because your nervousness will show during your presentations, so be confident in your work!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Good Professor, she was funny and engaging and let you choose the topics you spoke on. It was challenging but now so much that it was hard. She let you get passionate on your topic and provided great resources.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to affectively deliver my point. I learned how to confidently speak in front of people while also learning how to speak in front of people to produce a response.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your research and come prepared. If you don't come prepared to do your speech you will fail. She knows if you prepared or not just on the quality of the speech. Use notecards sparingly and memorize what you're going to say.
