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.

SPC Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.
