    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    An Audience-Centered Approach to Public Speaking helped me become an effective speaker with my own conversational manner. Dr. Beebe is an internationally recognized scholar with a refined mastery of competent communication skills; he is an excellent mentor and exquisite example. Best advice: those who start early experience higher grades. Most common answer: It depends on the audience.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the most common stress trigger in a the U.S. Is public speaking! Everybody gets nervous when they perform, but an individual's preparation and positive self-talk can conquer that anxiety. Most of the time, your audience can't even tell you're nervous! "Tell em' what you're gonna tell em', tell em', and tell em' what you told em'"; it is really that simple and a bit of knowledge of speaking history, structure, rhetorical devices, and non verbal messaging can go a long way!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    At Texas State, and I presume else where, we have a Comm Lab where you can rehearse and receive graduate feedback. Start early, seek out help, and watch some speakers online or on tv to see what speaking styles resonate with you!
