    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Johnson is a pretty laid back teacher, but he still manages to get his intended points across. He will give very clear instructions about the assignments so there is rarely any sort of misunderstanding.

    Course highlights:

    After taking "Principles of Public Speaking" I have found that it applies in every single argument, speech, and essay that I have given, and Improved each of them immensely.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take the accelerated class during the summertime. The work is simple enough, but immensely time consuming.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Mckay was wonderful! She obviously cares for her students and has a passion for communication. The assignments had clear purpose and were enjoyable to prepare. I looked forward to her class every week.

    Course highlights:

    Ms. Mckay was the highlight of this course. She made me want to grow as a communicator and as a human being. One of the coolest things about this class was the opportunity to participate in a school-wide speech competition to showcase the skills we had been learning over the semester.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare well for the assignments and welcome the instructor's advice/criticism when she offers it, because she is really a wealth of wisdom when it comes to communications.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. It has been with out a doubt one of my favourite classes this year. The class environment was open and productive while still maintaining an air of fun and enjoyment. Definitely a class you should take if you are looking to become a better speaker.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was getting to see how people handled themselves when they spoke and learning what to do and what not to do when speaking in front of a large group. It helped to teach me how to be confident and out going.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Put your all into your speeches and practice them before hand. Unless you are a natural born speaker, giving your speech off the cuff will most likely result in a terrible grade. The professor is willing to help you if your grade is falling so take advantage of that!
