    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course with this professor because this professor makes the class fun to learn. It is already a requirement to take this class, but I know many students are shy and are scared to talk in front of a group , which is why I recommend Professor Herman.

    Course highlights:

    My highlights were being able to get out of my shell and be able to be comfortable in front of a class. I learned techniques to make myself comfortable in front of people and also get peoples attention.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise students to stay calm and just have fun with assignments.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course focused on how to effectively present a speech to an audience. Professor Albritton is just wonderful. She makes you want to do better in the class. She gives great feedback because she keeps it real with you. She is straightforward and direct. That's what you need in a college professor. She writes her notes on the whiteboard, while you copy them down in your notes.

    Course highlights:

    The required textbook zeroes in on three specific types of speeches: the informative speech, the courtesy speech, and the persuasive speech. We did have to do an impromptu panel at the beginning of the semester; however, that was just more of discussion with a group of 4-5 people in front of the classroom, not by yourself. The informative speech was 5 minutes long and just plain facts about a topic. The courtesy speech was 2-3 minutes long about either a special occasion toast or an acceptance speech. The persuasive speech was 7 minutes long and is similar in structure to the informative, but you have to convince someone to make a change about something. Aside the speeches, we had to go see two CSUDH performances outside of class time. I watched Hairspray and Too Much Light Makes the Baby go Blind. We also had to write a production response on one of the plays. We had two Key Term Quizzes, one midterm, and one final. The quizzes and midterm are word for word fill in the blank sentences out of the textbook. It took me less than 20 minutes to complete each one because they're online. The final, however, is in class. You need to review the textbook for that one because the questions are uber specific and you will not pass if you do not review.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't really need to use the book for the quizzes and midterm because she gives multiple attempts at getting 100% on them. HOWEVER, YOU NEED TO REVIEW THE BOOK BEFORE THE FINAL EXAM. IT IS IN CLASS AND IT IS EVIL! THE NOTES WILL ONLY HELP YOU HALF WAY! Other than that you should be fine. :)
