    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking the class in the summer if you dont like speaking to larger groups, the class is smaller in the summer. Also the workload is a little lighter in the summer but it is a little more fast paced. Gomez is a really great teacher, really open to helping you in any way!

    Course highlights:

    There were 4 speeches by the end of it, the professor is good at making everyone feel more comfortable when speaking. I learned a lot about not only how to write a speech to get your point across but also how to deliver it effectively

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    put effort into writing your speech no matter what and if you need help just ask! they love it when you ask for tips and pointers, also rehearse the speech at least once before you present

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While I do value learning about public speaking, this is not the teacher to learn it from. She would easily get off topic and rant about things like racism and unequal rights. Those aren't bad thinngs to discuss but we weren't even giving speeches or debates on those topics. She spent one whole class period just ranting to us about it. Her instructions were never clear and she got very upset when we wouldn't follow them to the letter.

    Course highlights:

    Despite all of the negative things, I did learn good technique in public speaking and how to prepare and give a good speech. I also learned how to present a speech with a larger group.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    While it is a necessary gen ed course it can be a fun one. Just do the research on the available professors before picking a class. Also don't procrastinate. It might be easier to do with an essay, but people can definitely tell when you're not prepared for a speech.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is so friendly! He gives you strong, concrete advice on how to improve your public speaking skills! He not only teaches well with relatable examples and stories in class, but he also makes lectures fun by involving the class in some of his lessons. Overall, I would strongly recommend this class to you!

    Course highlights:

    One time, he emphasized the importance of using specific words in our speeches. He did this by asking a girl in our class to bring him a "thingamabob" in the midst of a ton of different types of rulers. Just watching her confused expressions was hilarious! We finally understood his point that if you don't use concrete language, then your audience won't get your message!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best way to prepare for your speeches that you will give in this class is to practice your speeches well beforehand! Prepare for any possible situations (if your audience starts to get bored or if you decide to inform your audience how to make a chocolate milkshake and you needed more time to set up beforehand.)
