Quickened heart rate, sweaty palms, fast talking -- we all know the uncomfortable feelings that can accompany the moment we stand up in front of others to present information. While being able to speak confidently in front of an audience, both formally and informally, is a skill that transcends the classroom, public speaking continues to cause stress and fear for many, but it doesn’t need to be this way! Through an examination of speeches, discussion of the rhetorical situation, and plenty of practice, this course aims to equip students with a variety of strategies and techniques to increase their confidence and readiness for future public speaking experiences. Please come ready to leave your comfort zone in an environment of support and encouragement.Skills:
