    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because at some point in our life were going to have to make a speech, it could be a formal or informal speech and this class makes that happen for you.

    Course highlights:

    I took this class my freshman year of college and I was going through a lot. But the professor made sure her classroom was a safe and understanding environment. I felt some comfortable in this class i made a speech about my sister passing away while taking this class, this was one of the classes I didn't have to worry about. I learn to pace myself when giving a speech, sometime your so nervous about giving the speech. you hurry through the speech with out getting you point across. The Professor had tips and clue on how to control those nervous. One clue was giving a speech to someone in another class that your not necessarily friends with or know on a personal level.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    One advice i will give is always pick a topic that has meaning to you on a personal level, interest level, or work level, this way you know this topic and it won't feel like a research paper, but very second nature.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Although speech can be a hard program for many to endure, seeing as public speaking is ename number one, this class was very fun and easy to get through. The instructor is very inviting and doesnt intimidate at all, she is very laid back, and doesnt count minor things against you. She wants to give all A's so as long as you show up and try and give your speech there is no way you can fail this course.

    Course highlights:

    I feel like i learned a lot more about speaking out loud and defeating my fear of public speaking. I also learned how to keep my anxiety at bay, and be able to present a good presentation. However i found that one of my favorite things was the fact that i learned different types of public speaking and was not limited to just the academic style of speech.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This semester this teacher formed a group to help with speeches. This group gives people the opportunity to give a trial run of their speech and get feedback, which i found to be helpful. Note cards are also very helpful, as well as practicing the speech with a general outline, but not memorizing everything.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This classroom offers a great environment to feel welcome in, which is perfect for those who are apprehensive about taking a speech class. Unfortunately, there is so much emphasis on making sure everyone is comfortable, that there is no emphasis on ensuring true communication skills are developed. The world is not always welcoming and in order to truly be successful, I believe in a classroom setting especially, there need to be times of critical evaluation. The course was self graded and class governed. Perfect for those who want to pass, not perfect for those wanting to develop genuine skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that, when given the opportunity to take the easy way out with no negative reprocussions, a group of young people will most often take that path, even to the extent of harming their own future success.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class is a great opportunity to get through a required course without doing any actual work.
