HUM 110: Speech

The act of speech is fundamental to the human experience, and the formal practice of public speaking stands as a pillar of Western civilization.  This course exists to offer students practice and understanding of formal public speaking through study of the theories underlying it and preparation and presentation of speeches.  These will include a performed recital of a selected work, a manuscript speech on an informative topic, and an extemporaneous persuasive speech.  Also of importance will be the ability to analyze speeches, which will be discussed along with the theories underlying public speaking and tested through a written exam at the midpoint of the semester.
 
Below appear the syllabus and course calendars for my classes in the Summer 2013 term.  Please be sure to check the section number (the three digits after the point in the course number) to be sure you have the correct section for your class.
 
Below also are links to sub-pages detailing the major assignments.
 
Information on this page and the subpages linked below was posted for the Summer 2013 term at TCI.  It is left in place as a reference for future work.
