    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Chris is one of the ebst professors I have ever had. He expects a lot of his students and really wants to make a difference in your life. Public speaking is one of the top five fears and he really makes it so easy for students who are scared to be able to speak in front of a crowd. He even teaches you how to write and give a toast, a speech that most students will have to do eventually at either a wedding or any other party. He isn't aiming to fail you, he wants to help you succeed and go beyond just persuasive and informative speeches. He expects a lot from students which helps prepare you for upper level classes students will eventually have to take. Overall an excellent teacher.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights include his humor and of course him preparing us for things we wouldn't even think of. He doesn't just teach you how to speak he teaches you how to prepare for real world scenarios. he teaches you how to recover if you slip up while speaking and he does it through humor and life examples. You will never go a day without laughing in his class as well. He makes the environment so inclusive and fun for every student.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to be clear and grammatically correct. Be ready for deadlines and responsibility. Be ready to laugh.
