This class was tough.
I was terrified of speaking in public! I took this course, not for my major, but for my personal growth. I now see public speaking as an opportunity to improve for the next time.
The highlights were making speeches, watching speeches while thinking critically, and working on behavior which may be distracting to the audience. I have learned to rethink my thinking. I don't dread speaking in public anymore. I look at it as an opportunity to practice before doing it again.

Advice for students:
Don't take feedback personally, it will only help you. Make sure you block out time to write out your speech (be creative). Practice, practice, practice.
