    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend the course because it helped me a lot with presentation for my other classes and my writing. Before I had trouble with my writing being concise and following my topic but after this course I got tips to help make sure my writing flows and is understandable.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was video taping are performances. At the beginning I was terrified but being able to see myself was beneficial for me to pick up on performing habits that I had that take away from the presentation. Also I could see what my peers would see in class so, next time I can make modifications where I needed too.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in the class I would just pay attention to all the little tips he gives you from the text book and take good notes. When he mentions tips in class he will be looking for them in your presentations and practice what you plan on saying because he takes points off for reading directly off your notes too much.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone simply because it is relevant to all career paths. As uncomfortable as public speaking is to some, it is a necessary discipline. This class creates an environment where compliments and constructive criticism flow in conjunction to create clear and confident public speakers.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the various practice presentations that we had to do. This helped us to put into practice the different types of presentations we may have to give in the future. These presentations included a speech for promoting a product or location, a speech for explaining how something works, and a professional speech detailing an issue in our future careers and how we can solve it. It was challenging and nerve-wrecking, but exceedingly useful. I learned how to engage my audience and how to modify my nonverbal communication to coincide with my verbals. I also learned how to read the audience in order to determine whether or not they are receiving my message in the way that I intend. Overall, this class was very helpful in teaching me how to get past my nerves so that I can present clearly and confidently.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you have to be humble and diligent. It's not fun to hear all the things you did wrong in a speech, but it is important that you take the constructive criticism and use it to your benefit in the future. If you follow the advice and tips given by your peers and instructor, and if you take the time to carefully prepare and practice your speeches ahead of time, then you will do fine in this class. It takes more effort to fail than to succeed in public speaking.
