    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course with Ryan. He is an outstanding instructor who integrates pop culture and traditional public speaking. This class has the potential to be very intimidating but Ryan makes it very enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    I love giving speeches but Ryan really challenged me to focus on being very direct when presenting a topic. My most frequent mistake was that I was not explicitly stating my theses. I learned how to maintain my natural flow while also adhering to the academic outline.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be nervous for this course. Pay attention to what you like to hear when listening to any speech and apply it to your own work. Also try to speak using various volumes in order to emphasize the point of your speech. Body language is the biggest secret to this course, even if you are nervous don't let your body show it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because for Summer B you only have 6 weeks to get a whole semester worth of information. She uses the time appropriately and truly help easy your way from highs school into college. The class size is similar to high school classes but also has challenging material. She truly motivates her students to not fear public speaking and makes it a very friendly and safe environment.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class is that you are able to ask questions and learn in multiple ways. She not only uses lecturing, but PowerPoint, video examples, class projects, team exercises to help stimulate our minds in many different ways. It helps the class as a whole because the more ways you see the information the more likely it is to remain in you brain and this will definitely help you when it comes to exams and finals.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say take her seriously when she says to take your notes before class. It helps with in-class activities if you know a generalization of the topic beforehand. Also do not try and improvise your speeches. She asks for outlines to be very robust so don't be afraid to fill it with information.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class may seem very difficult at first especially when you are introverted and rather not speak in front of the class. However this course is very helpful and you will find yourself using some of the speaking techniques that you have learned in this class for other courses too.

    Course highlights:

    This course has helped me handle my nervousness and stagefright a lot. I not only learned about public speaking but also useful information that i would need throughout my college career such as how to cite my sources correctly and how to word things appropriately.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice and rehearse for your speeches as much as you can. You may think you have it down or you will just do it without practicing but it will turn out to be much more difficult.
