Assessment
and Goals
:

Assessment: Students will be asked to present a variety of public speeches, and to reflect and analyze their own sense of increased proficiency and confidence in speaking. Students will be asked to describe effectiveness in communicating ideas to audiences, and to self-evaluate their increased sense of understanding ways to match messages to rhetorical situations. Students will also take exams. Goals: To teach students to effectively prepare and deliver public speeches in a variety of situations. To teach students to apply critical thinking and listening skills to their own experiences as speakers and audiences.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE WILL REPLACE A PREVIOUSLY OFFERED SPCH 1051, INTRODUCTION TO PUBLIC SPEAKING, THAT HAS BEEN OFFERED FOR 4 CREDITS. THE 2 CREDIT FORMAT, WHICH WILL CONTAIN AN ABBREVIATED ESSENCE OF THE PREVIOUS CLASS, WILL ALLOW THE DISCIPLINE TO OFFER MORE SECTIONS PER YEAR. THE NEW SPCH 1052 WILL ALSO COMPARE WITH THE PUBLIC SPEAKING UNIT OFFERED IN THE PROPOSED SPCH 2071 COURSE, GIVING OUR CURRICULUM GREATER CONSISTENCY.
