I believe learning should be hands-on process, and that teaching should be done using a variety of tools and approaches.
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.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
With regard to written work: I will not accept late work!. This applies to all daily work, papers, and so on. The only exception to this is if there is some extenuating circumstance, and you contact me IN ADVANCE to get an extension. If you have a problem that precludes you from turning a work in on time, call or e-mail me IN ADVANCE of the due date, let me know what’s going on, and we can make arrangements.
With regard to make-up speeches…Class time is very precious, and there will be no time for make up speeches. You must be prepared to speak on the scheduled day of your speech. If you are called on to speak, and are not prepared, you will receive a zero for the speech. If you have some extremely good excuse why you cannot attend on the day you are to speak, you must contact me IN ADVANCE to let me know why you cannot be there. If you can then PROVE that there is some good extenuating circumstance, you may be allowed to give your speech (time permitting) at my discretion. But, again, if you do not contact me IN ADVANCE and do not show up on the day of your speech, you will receive a zero.
