    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course with professor Villa. Despite that this course is mandatory, this class helps you become comfortable with your audience and how you present yourself. Professor Villa is an excellent mentor and provides instruction for you assignment which requires in depth researching, getting to know your topic before you present. This course introduced me to a new aspect of better preparing myself for self presentation upon an audience.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was that everyone became comfortable with each other, and gave each other constructive criticism. Everyone was supportive of each other, which I think gave everyone a benefit of feeling a little more confident. Upon presenting, we had to know our speech and info that we presented inside and out. At the end of the presentation we would have to ask questions about the topic including the professor. The proffer came as intimidating because he would bombard us with questions that forced us to think critically.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Once you know what type of speech you are giving, whether it is persuasive, informative, etc., pick a topic that will most interest you. Make sure you have credible sources and are accurate; meaning up to date information. Have at least 15 resources that you can refer from. But before looking for information, make a list of the things you'd want to know or share. Create an outline, this helps organize your thoughts and make sure you are topic and don't drift off. Once you are finished with the final speech outline practice in front of friends or family and try not reading off the paper.
