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 complete all assignments on time. Unexcused late speeches will lose one letter grade after the assigned date and one letter grade each week thereafter. The instructor may make allowances for documented illnesses, emergencies, or work-related issues. Anyone who cannot complete a term due to some unforeseen circumstance would have to file for an incomplete with the university, subject to approval by the instructor based on proper documentation.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Classrooms are intended to be non-threatening. I encourage open discussion that shows respect for the rights and feelings of others. Faculty members are expected to dismiss from class any students whose behavior is detrimental to the good order of the class. Unacceptable behavior includes, but is not limited to, abusive or obscene language, attending under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and in general being disruptive in any manner. Students dismissed are subject to a failing grade, suspension, or expulsion. Unacceptable behavior, whether verbal or written, is subject to disciplinary action ranging from suspension to expulsion. Such behavior demonstrated toward administrative or support personnel is subject to the same sanctions. Please turn off cell phones and pagers while class is in session.
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. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
