    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public speaking is frightening to most, but is a life skill I believe everyone needs. This class helped me break out of my comfort zone and face my biggest fear: public speaking.

    Course highlights:

    In this class I learned the fundamentals of various types of speeches and how to properly execute them in front of an audience.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice your speeches!! Record yourself and critique yourself. After all, you are your harshest critiquer.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very engaging. He makes class interesting and provides many examples and personal experiences to make sure we understand the topics. He provides very useful feedback for speeches and is not condescending for those that have a fear of public speaking (such as myself lol).

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to use my quiet/timid demeanor to my advantage in public speaking. I also learned a lot of other life skills from the professor. Very minor tips but they make all the difference! Gained much more confidence in public speaking from this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! it's a fairly easy course and you get a lot from it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Highly recommend this class if you are one who loves talking and being creative with any type of situation you are assigned in. Also if you are one who wants to get yourselves out there more but you are a bit afraid, I recommend you taking this class because this class will give you tips and guidelines on how to calm your nerves while giving a presentation.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was that for each speech that was assigned to us, they were all different. I loved the different types of speeches we had to present such as: giving awards speech, giving a eulogy speech, a persuasive speech, etc. By having different types of speeches, it really helped me adapt in many ways for many different situations that I will encounter in life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give is to not be afraid to do something different and creative. I know a lot of people in my class that took the safe lane. Instead, talk about something that interests you, dress up, bring props for your presentation, start and end with a funny attention getter! The more you stand out from the rest of the class, the more of an impression you will give off to the teacher.
