Speech 10 Course Description

Fundamentals of Oral Communication is a hands-on practical class that provides an introduction to the theory, basic principles, and methods of effective oral communication. In this class, we emphasize improving communication and listening skills in the contexts of public speaking, small group discussion, and interpersonal communication.

I believe that true learning only occurs when everyone is involved and interested in the material presented. Our class will consist of a combination of lectures, discussions, group activities, projects, and speeches. Through constructive feedback, we will all have the opportunity to teach and help each other. I encourage you to use this course to explore and broaden your world view. Please, challenge yourself and explore issues that matter to you.
