Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, open dialogues, examinations, videos and rhetorical presentations. The instructor believes that, with practice, students can improve their skills to effectively communicate in front of various audiences.
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 will be graded on a midterm and a comprehensice final exam. To maximize the learning process it is important that students attend class and take an active role in classroom proceedings. As such, students will be graded on attendance and participation. Students will also be graded on four required speeches which will be presented to the entire class.
Late Submission of Course Materials: No assignment will be accepted late without a valid excuse communicated to the instructor at least 24 hours in advance. Any speech, except for the final speech, not presented on the due date will lose one letter grade and will be presented at the discretion of the instructor. Failure to take the mid-term exam at the scheduled time will also result in a one letter grade penalty. Failure to complete the final speech or the final exam on the due date will result in a zero for those particular assignments.
