Educational Philosophy: To provide an underestanding of the theory and practice of oral communication. Emphasis is placed on building self confidence in speaking situations. The course presents theories of public address and develops knowledge of critical methods. Students will learn by preparing, presenting, and critiquing several speeches. The student will have an understanding of the communication process and how to present it well, including in written form. A student should become a critical listener and thinker, and know what constitutes excellence, using skills to properly gather, evaluate, and communicate information.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The core assessment for CA103-Public Speaking will be a Final Speech. This speech be a type of speech (persuasive or informative, forexample) already given by the student during the semester. For example, if a student has given informative, persuasive, and demonstration speeches during the semester, he must select one of those types of speeches to give for the final. The rationale is that a student increases his mastery of a type of speaking by giving that type of speech twice. The length of the speech will be determined by the instructor, and the topic by the instructor and/or the student.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Each student will be expected to do the following:
A. Take one exam to demonstrate knowledge of the material.
B. Give 6 speeches. There will be 2 informative and 1 persuasive, each for 10 minutes with topics chosen by the student. There will be an impromptu for 3 minutes, the topic chosen by the instructor. There will be an introductory speech of 1 minute, the student acting as an emcee for another speaker. The final speech is a learning outcome, which is informative for 8-10 minutes, designed to show what the student has learned during the term and whether confidence has been gained.
Informative #1 10%
Informative #2 10%

Below 65, or 3 unexcused absences in a term, or 2 consecutive unexcused absences =F
The exam uses assorted style questions and the instructor has the discretion of granting full, partial, or no credit for any answer. Students will received graded evaluations for speeches (student critiques do not factor in). Grading speeches is subjective, so the instructor has the discretion of determining what constitutes good or subpar work and what points may be deducted. For the final speech students must mee the Core Assessment Rubric guidelines as noted. Students must also understand points will be deducted from the participation grade for any unexcused absences and may also be deducted if students arrive late or leave early, or are late in doing any assignment unless the instructor feels there is a valid reason and the point deduction is at the discretion of the instructor.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Students are expected to do assignments on assigned dates. Allowances can be made for documented illnesses, emergencies, or work related issues. Anyone who cannot complete a term due to some unforseen circumstance would have to file for an incomplete with the university, subject to approval by the instructor based on proper documentation.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: A classroom is designed to be non-threatening. Open discussion is encouraged but students are expected to respect the rights and feelings of others. Faculty members are expected to dismiss from class any student whose behavior is detrimental to the good order of the class. Behavior includes but is not limited to abusive or obscene language, attending under the influence of alcohol or drugs, etc. Students who are dismissed are subject to a failing grade, suspension, or expulsion.

Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89My philosophy is that any student purposely cheating should be given no less than a failing grade for the course. If a student is unsure about information for any speech or assignment should consult the instructor.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2005-2006 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87As with academic honesty, this is a serious matter. Again students unsure need to consult the instructor because plagiarism can occur even through carelessness.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-90As noted in Late Submission of Course Materials, students must provide documentation to receive credit for an unexcused absence.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance.

It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities.
