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:
Students must read all material prior to the next schedule class. Each student will be required to present in front of the class 3 speeches. The speeches are Impromptu 1 minutes, Informing 5 - 6 minutes and Persuading 7 – 8 minutes. Final speech 5 - 6 or 7 - 8 minutes.
Each speech will be timed and 5 points will be deducted for going over or under your time. Each student will build a complete outline for each speech and each outline must be done in the same manner as the HANDOUT given. It will be graded along with the speech on the same day. Students will sign up for speech dates of their choosing and no students will be allowed to give two speeches on the same night of class. If a student later decides to change his or her speech date, 2 points will be deducted.
If the instructor determines that a student has not properly prepared for their Speech and is basically going through the motions a 10 point deduction can be applied. Students will received One Take Home Exam. Failure to give a speech will result in a “20” point deduction. There is no extra credit in this class.
