    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was graded out of a total of 100 points. Therefore, there were 8 10-point assignments, one 5-point assignment, and a 15-point participation grade. It was difficult to obtain an A in the class, but it was possible!

    Course highlights:

    We had four tests (persuasion, informative speaking, group communications, and a miscellaneous quiz that encompassed two chapters of the textbook). We had three individual speeches (one informative, one informative with a visual aid, and one persuasive) and a group project. The highlights of this course, for me, included the group project as well as the persuasive speech.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to practice speeches. It is also very important to go to class; you get a participation grade and the professor usually discusses what will be on the tests.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I'll start off by saying the teacher is very funny and I enjoy his engaging roll call every morning. So far there is nothing I don't like about the class, except maybe that I'm not a fan of group projects that require out of class meetings, and this one includes that; however, that's a matter of personal opinion. The criteria isn't difficult to learn, but you probably wont pass a test without looking over the text a couple times or taking a practice test. Overall a class I would take again if I had to.

    Course highlights:

    This class has a lot of speeches in it; however, it focuses a lot on interpersonal communication as well. The textbook for the class is largely based on communications (fitting, as it's called 'Essential Communication").

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take practice tests, do your research for speeches, and do not assume you can give a speech without writing cues on a notecard or bringing an outline.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    By focusing on the principles of communication, SPC1017 prepares individuals to understand themselves and those around them for the rest of their life. Moving beyond the seemingly obvious aspects of everyday interaction, SPC1017 deconstructs and explores the factors that contribute to effective communication in detail.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I learned about listening styles, ethical listening, and aggressive Vs. assertive communication. Now that I have created these mental boxes, I am much more able to engage in constructive communication and empathy regarding the viewpoints of others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course, try to forget any opinions about yourself or others regarding public speaking. If you haven't studied communications, it is more likely that your perceived "inabilities" are based more on your skewed self-perception than on your objective capacity for communication. Let yourself learn something new!
