    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very interesting class. There's a lot more to public speaking than any of us thought there would be.

    Course highlights:

    I am a lot more comfortable talking in front of people, and not just my peers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work a lot on outlines, and going through your next speech with Mrs. Saur as much as you can to make sure you will do well.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches a person how to be a better speaker, more fluent in giving speeches, and it makes a person feel more comfortable when having to go in front of groups of people and talk.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course were learning how to give better speeches and multiple different types of speeches. Some types even were in groups or with partners, so a person did not always have to give a speech by themselves.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to students considering this course is to practice the speech many times so a person does not end up forgetting anything, dress nicely, look at the audience, and do not just stand in one place while giving a speech.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to students considering this course are to practice your speech over and over again, when speaking do not sound like you have memorized it, change your pitch and tone when giving a speech, and dress nicely and act appropriate when giving a speech.
