Description
The overriding goal of this course is to demystify the process of writing, practicing, and performing a clear and engaging speech. In so doing, I hope this course can help each student improve the quality of their speeches and confidence with which they present them. More specifically, upon successfully completing this course, you should be able to: design and deliver basic presentations concisely; design and deliver informative presentations clearly; design and deliver complex arguments persuasively; speak confidently with appropriate rate, projection, movement, and vocal variety;  evaluate and critique speeches insightfully.
