Public Speaking Q1
This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of public speaking. These basics include every step of the process, from researching to outlining to delivering a speech. We will also focus on the relationship between speaking and listening, dealing with nervousness, gauging an audience, and using visual aids as support. Students will be asked to give an array of speeches that will enhance their appreciation of and comfort with the art of elocution. Through oral assignments and written assignments, we will cultivate strong critical reasoning, analytical, and argumentative skills.
