Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, speeches, exams, group projects, writing and more. I will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions. This is a discussion-oriented course and students should be aware that they will frequently be asked to participate in class including to critique their peers.
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:
All course work is expected to be completed on time. If you know you will not be able to complete an assignment before the assignment due date during particular class period, talk to me or email me with at least 24 hours notice and you will be allowed to turn the assignment in late. The instructor must receive all authorized late assignments before the beginning of the next class period to avoid a 20% grade deduction. All assignments more than two weeks late will not be accepted. NO ASSIGNMENTS MAY BE EMAILED TO INSTRUCTOR - for late credit or otherwise.
The 24-hour Rule
As mentioned above, anytime you need to schedule an alternative day to turn in an assignment, you must contact me 24 hours prior to the assignment deadline you are trying to avoid. Additionally, if you are dissatisfied with a grade on an assignment, you must wait 24 hours to talk to me about it. There are no exceptions. In case of sudden illness on a day a major assignment is due, you must contact me, or at least leave a message, before the class meets, not the next class period.
