    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even if you don't need speech, TAKE THIS COURSE. You need to be able to get over that hurdle of talking in front of people and this teacher is the one that will help you do it. You'll be a new person when you finish the course!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to talk in front of people and not think anything of it. I learned how to act very professional. I learned how to be respectful in all classrooms with "strict" rules. But they really make sense. For example, even if it's not in the teacher's rules, turn off and put away your phone in ANY classroom. It shows respect.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't slack! The schedule doesn't change unless there's a category 5 hurricane coming ;)

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Professor Markham was helpful, intuitive, knowledgeable and supports all his students in their endeavor to continue education. He works the student hard, but the results are rewarding. Its a class that all MUST take to complete your degree, but is worth it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to speak in public in different scenarios: Presentations, Weddings, Funerals, etc

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class. Pay attention and take notes when he tells you to.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Rod is kind and enthusiastic about teaching speech and creates a atmosphere of welcome and calm. He has taught me how to deliver a successful public speech without pushing myself or anyone in my class too far out of our comfort zones. I got a D the first time I took Speech at DSC because I was so nervous when it would be my turn to take the stage. This time I got an A and I had to take it condensed this time. If that doesn't speak for itself I don't know what does.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to control my anxiety. We were taught how to write a successful speech with a drop- the- mic. ending that the audience will never forget in their lives. We got honest reviews form both our instructor and our peers. We learned how to exude convidence and act like we were having a conversation with the audience rather than delivering an entirely serious (and flat) speech.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never put off to tomorrow what you can do today. Always run through your speech out loud beforehand, this way you can make sure you're making your time and mark where you'd like to pause (for dramatic supense). MAKE SLIDES. It will be connsidered optional on most speeches. Do it anyway. If you lose your notes then your slides will be your notes, your audience will enjoy it, it makes your speech better and your teacher will give extra points for it. However, whatever you do, don't read from the slides because Prof. Rod hates it.
