Professor Rushing is one of the best professors I've had. He is truly a wealth of knowledge and will teach you skills that translate directly into the real word,not just academia. He teaches class via theory, personal experience, and kinetic learning. Don't expect a cake walk but he gives you all material and information to pass his class.

I would say that Professor Rushing has passion with his students. He will help you if you cooperate working with your speeches. I missed my speech and he emailed me that he can work with me. I really appreciate how much he cares to his students. He adjusted his time to see me to do my speech. Without his great motivation, I almost gave up.

Rushing is a very unique teacher. He uses both story and lecture to teach his class so sometimes it can get confusing when he comes back. He assigns about 4 speeches and 3 tests during the semester. The tests are easy if you study the notes and try the pretests. He is very strict about how you site your sources. A USB is required for the course.

I got a B in this class and I still don't suggest taking it with this teacher. He is so RUDE and he will belittle you. First day of class he bashed everyone for the careers they decided to take and I watched him make 2 girls cry. He does NOT follow the syllabus and he goes over class time talking more about his personal life than the actual subject

He is a fear professor, Which means if you give him what he wants you will get the grade you will receive the grade that you want.

Even attending every class and taking notes, I failed miserable and had to withdraw. His lectures are snippets of stories and its hard to tell when he switched from lecture to story and back, he chastised us in front of everyone after our first speech saying he was trying to help but I was so intimidated, I did not want to do the last two speeches.

If you're already good at talking in front of people like I am then this class will be easy for the most part. If you're a procrastinator and aren't good at talking in front of people take someone else. He doesn't go over everything clearly such as speech requirements. Also study for his tests because they get pretty hard.

Rushing is by far the worst professor I have ever had.. He is rude and loves himself too much to even focus on telling you how to do well in the class. His directions are confusing and he doesnt follow his syllabus... Dont take him unless you are extremely good at talking in front of people, and even then he will tear you to pieces...

He is by far one of the worst professors ok have taken. He is so scattered. Sadly, he is more into telling stories of himself than actually teaching. He is extremely confusing and is not clear on when things are due. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS IF YOU WANT TO PASS.

Taking this teacher was my only regret this semester. For a speech teacher, he is incredibly unclear on assignment requirements and course material Also, HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU! He lied to my face when he said he would round your grade up if you were a few points from a letter grade. I left with a 79.6%. Out of five classes this was my only C.

Pretty easy class if you just show up and do your work. He's pretty unorganized and forgets things hes assigned or said. Just do everything he says and you'll be alright. He will also try to sneak the exam study guides onto blackboard and not tell you he did it. (Exact copy of test). He'll tell alot of dumb stories about himself, just let him talk.

He's honest to a point. Treats his class like the business world and has high expectations of students. Show up with assignments when they're due and do not miss speech days. Take notes during lectures even if it doesn't always seem important. You'll do alright if you do EXACTLY what he asks for.

I would not reccoment this teacher. He talks about his personal stories majority of the time and spent little time on lectures. I dont believe anyone had a decent score on his exams because of how unorganized the course material was. But Ill tell you this, if we had an exam on his personal life and experiences we would all pass it with flyin colors

Would not recommend. What bothered me the most is his lack of organization, not only are lectures a hot mess, but he isn't clear on what is due when AT ALL. He's no nonsense in a bad way and he never thinks he's at fault. He'll never believe that he forgot to tell you about an assignment, because he's always right. Also, tons of boring stories.

Only thing that makes him easy if you do exactly what he tells you to do. Most likely he will give you the answer on the quiz and test if you pay attention. There are times you can use the book or notes you have on the quiz he gives in class. Other than that its very mandatory for you to be present for all your speeches, do that and you will be ok.

Pay attention to when he says to have the persuasive & informative speech outlines done in advance, he's not lying it's as simple as that. The quizzes are stupid easy as the exams are. As long as you don't wait until the last minute to get everything done & don't mind his babbling about things you'll get a good grade.Go to class its an easy grade!

Find a better professor if you can and avoid him at all cost! Can be very sarcastic, rude and conceited. Boring lectures and the speeches/test/quizzes are unpredictable meaning get ready to pull off a speech two days before it’s due because that’s when he will tell you. So many people dropped his class and I stuck it out. Listen to the reviews

His class is difficult and there are a ton of lectures. He is super honest and objective which is great for the right students but grading is harsh. The tests aren't that difficult but you need to take good notes and study. There are a lot of components to speeches which is really difficult for some people.

After finishing the class, I did take away some good tips on speeches and writing; however, during the class itself it held high difficulty. His lectures are terribly confusing and he often goes off on tangents. When you are able to decipher his points, they are helpful hints but otherwise he is hard to follow. He HATES memorized speeches.
