    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really disliked public speaking before enrolling in this class. I was that person who would always go last in presentations because something about presenting in front of others just scared me to no end. This class did an amazing job of pushing me out of my comfort zone and getting me comfortable in public speaking situations which is kind of important in professions like Athletic Training where we often have to speak to large groups. I would be lost as far as public speaking goes if it were not for this class!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to put together speeches and gain confidence in giving speeches in front of others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid walking into this course. Everyone has to take it at some point and I promise no matter how much it scares you, this class will help you grow when you look back later in life which is so important in college and your professional development.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I was excited for this course because I would like to improve my public speaking skills (what this class focused on). This course was fast-paced because it was a three-week summer course, but I do not think I learned much throughout the course. I had Cade Spaulding as the lecturer, but I had Trish Zdroik for the discussion section (the majority of the course time). They were not on the same page as each other, which made understanding expectations very difficult. The expectations were often changed, as well.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, we were to learn how to give informative and persuasive speeches. We gave three speeches (which made up 70% of our grade). Most of the class was spent preparing for these speeches, since we had one speech per week. I think the most useful aspect of the class was simply becoming more comfortable in front of others. I do not feel that I learned a lot about the techniques of public speaking.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is very important to do all the day's homework that day, as well as usually some of the next day's homework. You have to be very proactive, and you need to go above expectations. For example, we were told the minimum number of sources we needed, not what it took to get an A. We did not know how many was expected for a good grade (not just passing) until the day of. I ended up finding 11-12 sources for the last speech (minimum was said to be 7, I believe), and I was still downgraded. Also, pay attention to timing. Practice your speeches multiple times, and then still pay a ton of attention to the time cards. Be able to cut or fill speech time as needed.
