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.
