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: -If you miss class with an excused absence when a speech is due, you will be expected to give the speech during the next class at which you are present. If you are not prepared at that time, your speech will not be graded. There may be cases where time does not permit you to present the speech on that day, but you should not count on that.
-If you miss the midterm exam, you will not be given class time to take it. You will need to arrange to take the exam at the Park office within one week of the scheduled time or you will not receive any credit.
-Written assignments can be submitted electronically even if you are absent. Therefore, late assignments will not be accepted for grading. However, you will still need to prepare and submit your list of sources prior to the speech to get credit for that portion of the grade.
-Assignments that are late due to an unexcused absence will not be accepted for grading.
-All work must be submitted by July 26, 2012 (the last class meeting).
