    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it will help your public speaking skills whether you are outgoing or shy. Everyone has room to improve, and this course will search for those flaws and allow you to improve upon them. Clites gives feedback to every student for each speech and will discuss how to improve if you take the time to approach her. She is very friendly and approachable, but you have to take initiative. I wouldn't recommend this course, however, because the grading is very strict in a negative way. Sometimes you might get points taken off for something that was not your fault. You can try to "fix" these things, but in the end, you may get points taken off every time. There were also several times were a large portion of the class thought they were doing what the professor asked but we all got points taken off anyway.

    Course highlights:

    There are four speeches given throughout the course: 2 informative and 2 persuasive. The first is about yourself, so it starts off easy. The next topics are chosen by yourself. There was also a film paper over The King's Speech in place of a final exam.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to pay attention to what you personally need to work on. If you don't know how to improve, ask.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows you to step out of your shell and begin learning more public communication skills. It helps with interacting with people in your everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    We learned how to set up a speech, how to give persuasive and informative speeches, and how to get an audiences attention.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to just go into it open minded and relax. At first, it can be scary getting in front of people you don't know but eventually it will get better and you will learn a lot about yourself during the process.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I took COMM 111 at 7 am, something no one should do, but Professor Wells-Gonzalez made the course one that was still high energy and fun to attend. I felt as though my speaking skills improved leaps and bounds in one semester!

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to properly organize a speech depending on the topic. I also learned how to channel my confidence in my speaking skills, something that comes in handy everyday.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely try to sign up for Professor Wells-Gonzalez, just not at 7 am.
