Hands-on introduction to public speaking. Students learn how to prepare and deliver material by giving speeches and one group presentation, and develop confidence in their speaking ability through in-class activities (both impromptu and prepared), rehearsal during tutorial, and feedback. This half-term course (of seven weeks) is especially suitable for those who are petrified of and/or new to public speaking. It is offered each quarter. Enrollment is limited.
