    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Tallman is such a well educated woman. She is a mother, so her kindness and maternal instincts helps her not only relate to her students on a friendly level, but also teach the content thoroughly and easily to understand. She grades hard, but it only helps you learn even more from your own mistakes. The skill of public speaking is so important and even if you aren't fond of it, Tallman makes it so thrilling and a beautiful thing!

    Course highlights:

    In the semester, we were instructed to write multiple speeches, and recite them to the class, all of differing types. We had the opportunity to write demonstrative speeches, teaching our classmates something we know well. We were able to write a eulogy if we wanted, which in my opinion was my favorite part of the class. It gave me the chance to share a special part of my being with my classmates and say goodbye to a friend I had lost! Tallman broke down the basics of a great speech and gave us advice after each assignment on how we personally could be better next time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When told to read a specific chapter in the class book each week for a quiz or test, definitely actually read them. A good portion of the grade is not only speaking publicly and well, but also test taking and learning content and the book helps if you really read it each week. Also, take time to work on the speech outlines; they really help you give a good, solid speech. Don't be afraid to ask advice before or even after you give a speech to the class; Professor Tallman is very kind and willing to work with you!!
