    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    He makes you feel so comfortable in his classroom and as long as you do your assignments correctly and speak loudly to the class you will get an A.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were to be able to speak to the public or group of people with confidence and being comfortable in doing so. I did just that. I was so fearful of talking to people and he broke that fear for me!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Believe in yourself and never give up! Everyone in the class is there for the same reason and not to judge you in anyway. It is a very open class where you can express your feelings and not be taken down because of them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class not only taught me how to feel comfortable speaking in front of a large group of people but it has also helped me learn how to work through my the main characteristics of being an effective speaker that I struggled with, without making me feel anxious or uncomfortable. If you are a person who fears public speaking or generally wants to be a more fluid public speaker this is the class for you. Professor Lightcap will help you work through the problems while creating an accepting and understanding environment to work those obstacles out.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course include the opening presentation talking about yourself to help you adjust and feel comfortable in the classroom with your fellow classmates. The Spoon River Presentation that allows you to enter the world of acting and speech clarity while allowing you to examine speech tone and word usage. And for the last big highlight, the final presentation, a demonstration of a hobby or interest, all eyes are on you, you are the star of the classroom for whatever you choose to demonstrate using all you have built from and learned about how to effectively get information across.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't hesitate! Don't fear that because you are uncomfortable speaking in front of people you, therefore, cannot do this. Professor Lightcap is an understanding and highly educated man who has a degree in theater arts as well as English. He not only knows how to help you feel comfortable in an environment that might initially cause a rise in anxiety. He will guide you every step of the way. The goal in the class is progress. Follow his advice, if you're like me, try and learn to tone down talking with your hands, and breathe.
