    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was hard, but very informative. I would recommend because you really learn the skills for speech. It also helped me learn how to manage work and projects in other classes from the in-depth speeches he requires. It teaches you the basics of speech, but also some of the psychology of speaking, and gives you confidence in future presentations. Though tough, the professor is brutally honest in order to make you better.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the main things you take away from this speech class are project management, confidence, team skills, and how to present. Every month you basically have one speech/presentation to make. During this time he breaks up the speeches into individual assignments which you MUST turn in on time. This teaches you to break up big projects. His thorough requirements for Power Points also give you a general guide on how to form presentations for other classes. His lectures also show you more about how and why speeches work. The knowledge learned will give you the basic 'do's' and 'don't's' for speeches and presentations you give for the rest of your life.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in the class you will need to keep up on assignments for projects. I highly recommend getting an agenda or calendar to help manage. Another tip would be to show up on time or a few minutes early for this class. The professor definitely does not appreciate tardiness. Notes are not imperative but definitely help as a reference when creating your presentations or doing assignments. Perhaps the most important thing for this class is to follow the rubric guidelines strictly. He likes everything formatted a certain way so it is imperative for a good grade that you use the format he wants. Furthermore, it's best to ask questions than assume and always use reliable sources.
