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: Test will include a mixture of subjective and objective items; multiple choice, True/False, and exam questions. Presentations will be assessed for grading based on instructor's requirements. Specific requirements will be given to student with instructions before each speech. Some presentations will also be peer-reviewed for constructive criticism.
Grading: A = 90- 100%
B = 80-89%
C = 70-79%
D = 60-69%
F = < 60%
Late Submission of Course Materials: If you have to be absent, please call or e-mail me as soon as possible. It is very important to communicate. If you miss something, make arrangements with me to get it in at the earliest possibl emoment. There isn't much time to slack, so it may not always be possible to reschedule a presentation, so it is very important you manage your time wisely. If you miss a presentation due to an unexcused absence, you will receive a grade of "zero."
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Computer makes writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize tough that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drives crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes. Be responsible while eating and drinking in the room. You must ensure that all your garbage is put in the appropriate places.
