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:
Late Submission of Course Materials: Students are expected to read assigned textbook chapters prior to the class meeting during which they are scheduled to be discussed. In addition, all students are expected to present scheduled speeches on time. Absences due to illness, military duty, etc. are considered "excused" absences; and the student may make up assignments missed due to excused absence. It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor and make arrangements to complete the missed work. Work missed as a result of "unexcused" absences cannot be made up; and a "0" will be entered for any missed work during unexcused absences. Excessive absences (whether excused or unexcused) may make it impossible for a student to satisfactorily complete course requirements.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Although many students dread public speaking, this class is intended to be enjoyable and non-threatening. Students are expected to respect the ideas of others during class discussion -- i.e., listen actively, avoid side discussions while others are speaking, etc. In a public speaking course it is essential for students to respect the rights and feelings of others when responding to speech presentations. Cell phones may not be used in the classroom, and students are expected to set cell phone rings to "mute" to avoid disrupting the class. Students are encouraged to ask questions; if you have a question, someone else in the class will more than likely have the same question.
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.

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.
