The speeches were exciting and fun to accomplish.
I liked that everything was organized from the first day of class; including the due dates for all assignments. I also liked how our professor prepared and helped us for the different types of speeches.
group project
Group discussion about events and how it relates to public speaking.
informative speech
the informative speech was the best because i like to inform people, better than persuavive them. It is a great class for any who loves speaking in public.
The aspects which i liked best was the way to approach certain situations and to think out for a moment before reacting to problems. This is a speech class and it will help you with your speaking skills with another person. Plain and simple.
Learning about human communications and the various ways its different between cultures
The instructor was very easy to understand and used a lot of personal experience to validate statements
Getting up in front of the entire class and actually talking. At first I hated public speaking, but this class made me for confident.
I like learning the different types of communication and the teacher also refers to the book on class discussion.
The speeches we had to write, and the lectures were interesting.
Speeches
the lectures after every chapter and the presentations.
I like how prepared Ms. Dias is every class and makes a point to have an outline due ahead of time. I also like that she is willing to review outlines prior to the deadline to make changes, if needed.
the entire class!
i like the entire course... very interesting
I truly liked the way she talked to the class - no pressure, made it enjoyable. She was very understanding and knowledgeable of certain situations and helped us to clearly understand the expectations and sincerely helped our class in our path of success. I liked how she intertwined her personal experiences with the subject at hand, which appealed her "humaness" to me. She made us feel valuable as human beings as well as students who are learning! She is one of those RARE teachers that you hardly get to be blessed with in college.
The things that I liked the best were the fact that we got to do group work with the other people in the class.
i liked that we had peer evaluations
The small class size as well as the many fun times you can have in a class this small.
The way Ms. Dias went about her teachings. Very organized and to the point.
presentation
Easy to follow class assignments.
The instructor was very pleasant and did a good job to make the course material relevant and interesting. I appreciated that she took time to show us the tools to do a correct citation for the reports and arranged for a library tour.
The instructor was very good and spoke clearly. She described the course well. She also had us practice speaking in front of the class which allowed us to practice our impromptu speaking skills.
The feeling of safety inside the classroom. the encouragement and evaluations.
Ms. Dias made the challenging and fun at the same time. I was very comfortable and I felt welcome. She's a sensitive and caring professor.
Doing the research for a speech paper.
practice presenting
I liked the informative speeches, because I learned a whole lot from hearing the these speeches. Like Colt Brennan, Organic food, making a dump cake, etc.
The oral aspect is the best because it helps us as students learn how to speak in front of an audience of your peers.
Group Presentations
I liked the whole course
She is very organize with the schedule. She offers to to help us with our outlines before our presentation. she is clear and easy to understand during lectures.
speaking in front of class
seeing and giving speeches
The communication and meeting people and communicating more
i liked the few assignments and the speeches we had to do.
presenting my speech topics in front of class
i like all the speeches that everyone gave it was very interesting.
i really like the fact that we used class discussions and had help with our speeches and powerpoints. and that she was always willing to help when we needed it. and i also liked how we used the book but we jumped chapters when we needed to.
the aspect of the course that i liked the best was being able to speak infront of the class. i felt like i was getting comfortable with the class mates and being able to speak infront of the class.
I liked that she made us feel free to talk in class and that we could share how we felt in the class. She was also ready to listen to our opinions.
watching clips of other speakers and watching students in class give speeches.
Educational Speech Videos
Speeches.
I learned a lot from the different speeches given by my classmates.
i liked the speech assignments
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Sometimes she would be moody or mean and would sound harsh.
Nothing really.
I didn't like where we were partnered up in groups by gender leadership. For example, the ladies had to pick the group where we could have drawn numbers and be grouped that way. I hate that some students are slackers and don't do any work.
the research and MLA stuff
It was all good!
persuasive speech
Nothing
persuasive speech

Not being at some classes to listen to lectures, and speeches
This was actually one of my favorite classes, so there was nothing I didn't like.
na
none
The students themselves were somewhat disorganized at times. I suppose this cannot be helped as majority of the students seemed to be either first-year college students or Running Start students.
None, I think it was okay. Expect having a member of our group for the group presentation who didn't show up most of the semester.
lectures.
Having to present in front of the class.
There wasn't anything that I didn't like. It would be the speeches that we had to give, but it was a must. It wasn't so bad though.
i liked everything
nothing
Going infront of the class and giving speech.
writing
i din not like the way we reviewed for tests.
can't really say
i didn't like that if i didn't do good on something it would hold my grade down and i just couldn't do anything really about it.
the outline
Doing my informative speech.
the least was dealing with the hassle and going up to give those speeches. i was always to lazy to do the things that was required to do the speeches.
None. I was just lazy.
that there weren't to much of hands on things to work with.
N/A
Never discussed about outline..

average it is an easy class and it does help your improvments.
It's a good class. It helps you in many ways.
Its a good class that helps you give better speeches
Great course. Need more time on PowerPoint and maybe one more speech is needed to really get a feel for public speeking
Fun, interesting, and great class
I like working with everyone in the class. Teacher made me feel like giving a speech isn't that bad. I became more comfortable with myself speaking and not feeling so insecure.
I enjoyed it. The instructor made the material interesting.
this course was very helpful. it helped me to not be afraid or nervous when giving a speech and its helping me now on how to work as a group for our group presnetations
I was terrified of speaking, but now I believe I can be organized, research, and deliver a speech well.

26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
More emphasis on reading the book. I barely touched mine.
The course could be improved if the course provided more speeches, and if the course provided quizzes or tests from the book for a better understanding.

This course doesn't need to be improved in any way :)
none
Nothing.
none
politics and religion are the best. The students should answer the most difficult questions.

Better text book work, so we can learn it easier. Maybe a few small speeches just for ice breakers.
Add one more speech. Involve more group activity. Devote some time to powerpoint
none
it was very interesting and make me think about communication. I am sure that i will have different aspect to communicate from now.
Doesn't need any improvements.
this course could be improved by having more lectures on every chapter we read. it can also have assignments due in class so it helps us have a better understanding.
i would like to put ms. dias in my pocket and take her everywhere with me!!!
Maybe to have more people in the class and to have more presentations.
i think the way the class is structured now is fine.
this course and help me out side of class or for the future. It can also help me through my major.
Maybe more class time to spend on some things speech prep in general.
