    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course! The class is so easy to follow and Kristina always has your back. She is there for you and as long as you communicate with her, she will make sure that you pass her class.

    Course highlights:

    Personally, I loved doing the informative speeches. These were the first ones that we did and it really gave us a chance to get to know one another. Kristina shapes the class in such a way that everyone eventually ends up feeling like a family.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to always remember to do your homework! When you do your speeches, she allows a note card and I would say to use it. It really helps you to remember your information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is excited to teach you, and- as long as you can cooperate with the class demands- you will find yourself really developing your public speaking skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to always give credit where it is due in research endeavors, prepared organized and detailed speeches, delivered speeches effectively without breaking a sweat, and took quizzes to reinforce class material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters to take the quizzes, put plenty of time aside to develop speeches, practice speeches a few days before they are due.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Nichole is an amazing teacher. She helped us become comfortable with each other and ensured the class had a supportive atmosphere where we never felt judged. It was fun too...I still remember some of the tongue twisters and games we used to warm up. There was never a dull moment in this class!

    Course highlights:

    I wondered if I was crazy registering for this course...soon I realized that I enjoy public speaking and am good at it. Highlights included a fun group video project, crawling on the floor making animal noises, and doing a mini speech on deterring vampires!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate! Jump into the activities with gusto, and you'll learn that public speaking isn't as terrifying as it sounds. Pay attention to the details (timing, wording, gestures)...and have fun!
