    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Taylor makes public speaking fun and enjoyable, allowing us to choose topics we love and are passionate about. With that though, she also goes through the course material well and gives good and helpful feedback on all aspects of your presentation. So through this course, she lowers the dreadfulness commonly associated with public speaking while still achieving the course curriculum​ and more.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what exactly to focus on not only while presenting a speech, but also while writing it as well. I also never before this course considered how much the audience effects the speech beforehand and during. Professor Linda​ also helped me improve my visual aid skills, as well as how to properly give a persuasive speech rather than an informative one.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't go into it being intimidated by the public speaking aspects ​because that will only make you hate the course before ever giving it a chance.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really learned to be more confident in myself as I spoke in front of my peers and I felt encouraged to grow and continue learning. This class helped me know what progress felt like.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight from this course was, surprisingly, the speeches. Each time I got to talk about something that really made me happy, and it was a great outlet. I learned a lot and grew even more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to really out effort into the speeches. It really is amazing to see what can happen when you choose to step out of you shell. Pay attention in class, and just give it your all.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sigworth is a straightforward teacher and tells you what she expects and why. Though a lot of learning was left for outside the class as homework (eg videos and essays) it was not a ton of work in the end and boiled down to three main speeches.

    Course highlights:

    Sigworth is like every person's grandma. You half expect her to have cookies or something! She has great stories from previous years of teaching about all the different ways people react under the stress of public speaking. The thing I learned most was that my fear of public speaking is not as crippling as many people's is and that it is something I can do.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to put work into your three speeches. She tends to lowball you slightly on your first speech but if you correct any mistakes she points out she will reward you for it the next time around.
