    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the content and professor. I felt the class thoroughly taught me to handle the stresses of speaking, how to set up multiple types of speeches and allocate time correctly during my speech. The professor was also extremely professional, and also helped the class during a difficult time which showed her character as a person.

    Course highlights:

    One of the many highlights of this course was the time we would spend breaking down TED talks. Professor Powers would help us break down strong and weak point of multiple speeches and also demonstrate proper and improper technique. Through this I learned many mechanisms to control many of the problems I encounter during public speaking which has helped me thoroughly throughout my next two semesters. Another highlight for me during this course was her willingness to work with, and communicate with students.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Public speaking can be a tough course when you do not have a professor who is willing to work with you and spend time teaching you how to correct your issues, rather than just mark you down for them. I highly reccomend Professor Powers. As long as you're willing to pay attention and work hard she will help you as much as she is able.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it helped me get over my fear of talking in front of people. Public speaking is something we will need to do for the rest of our lives, and this class made it seem easy. The professor was amazing, she really knew what she was talking about, and you can tell that this is something she is passionate about.

    Course highlights:

    Something I learned from this class was how to put together a proper speech in a way that was easy to understand. We did several speeches, each of different requirements, but went by the same format which was easy to follow.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always be ahead of schedule when writing your speech. If you're writing one of them, you should be thinking about what your next speech topic will be. Also, it is helpful to have your speech outline done a week before you present so you have time to adjust what you are going to say, and get feedback. My last piece of advice is to practice saying your speech out loud, either in your room, or in front of your peers.
