    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Terez Anderson is a wonderful teacher who seeks out things about a student that could aid in engaging and entertaining public speaking. For me, having a lisp, Terez taught me to poke fun of it during my speech, which lightens the mood of audience. She makes the class fun, and teaches every student how to be a more confident individual.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course, was the creativity Terez allowed her students to experiment with. She has a "Shark Tank Speech", where you have to create a product that could be on the market some day, and then try to sell it to a panel of people in class. The fact that outside the box thinking is not looked down on in her class, makes the learning potential so much greater in her class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be yourself! Do not be afraid to embrace your characteristics! This class is almost the same as a self improvement class, if you treat it in that way. While there is work and reading, the information you will attain from doing the work, is information that will carry with you the rest of your life. Be open to change, and be open to embracing who you are as an individual.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Robertson was an excellent teacher. He was enthusiastic and encouraged the class to share their thoughts. He helped me improve my public speaking skills so much!

    Course highlights:

    I loved the prompts he gave us for our presentations they were broad which allowed us to be creative. I learned correct formats for certain speeches whether it is a persuasive speech or an informative one.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even if you're shy in front of your peers you should definitely take this course because it helps you blossom and become more comfortable in front of an audience.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. Frontz is one of the best teachers anyone can have. Public speaking is not just a class, it is a life lesson to prepare the students when they become great leaders in the future

    Course highlights:

    The best time of the course was when we had to give a persuasive speech. I learned that many times if we want to do something for the world, we must show how great ideas can lead to great changes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is important to work hard to become familiar with possible stage fright, because later on the challenge of sweating in public becomes less embarrassing.
