    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Students are graduating and going off into the business world and may be unable to speak in front of an audience. Real world experiences are clearly shown throughout the course, and it definitely prepared me for my post-college life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different types of speeches; why certain ones are preferable over others depending the situation, and how to articulate an argument thoroughly. I believe that the entire course is a highlight and cannot pick one section over the other.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not read speeches from an already typed out document that you did the night before. It sounds unrehearsed and you're simply reading an essay. Also, you should have fun with it because everyone taking the class is just as nervous, if not more nervous, as you are.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the grading system allows you to make up for bad presentations. Mr. Drafall is very understanding and encouraging. The content you learn in this class is stuff you will find useful for the rest of your life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to make speech outlines, what and what not to say in front of an audience, and most importantly how to deal with speech apprehension.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read the text book and have good citations not only in your works cited but with in your speeches.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this instructor to everyone. He is a hoot to have as an instructor. He genuinely cares about what he is teaching, and he also makes the class enjoyable, especially for a class that everyone has to take.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basic model to give speeches as well as how to deliver strong speeches regardless of the topic. I also learned how to back up my claims with warrants so that what I am saying cannot be disproved. Eric Long made sure that everything we learned in the class was something that could be used outside of the class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to write as well as give speeches. Make sure you write the outlines because they will save your lives when it comes time to delivery days.
