"Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters" "Clear grading criteria"

Susan Houts is very energetic and has a way of giving her energy to her students. I had a tough semester because of childcare issues but I passed with a high B. Do not miss class. My advice KEEP UP AND SHOW UP (on time or you will be locked out), and don't use your phones. We are adults and this is higher education. She is worth every penny.

Mrs. Houts a stern professor, very energetic and eager to teach. Willing to help outside of class. As she would say "Show Up & Keep Up" and you will pass this class.

Mrs. Houts is by the far the best teacher I've taken at EFSC. Her class is an easy A if you just show some initiative. Speeches are not difficult and can be fun if you make them. She makes class fun and easy going. I would recommend her over any other.

I will admit Houts makes Speech class much more comfortable, considering I dreaded this class. She relieved many anxieties. However, she is CRAZY. She is very repetitive. She spends the whole class talking about 1 thing. She is energetic and sometimes it much to take. Take her, but be prepared. AND don't miss her class and be on time.

Mrs Houts is the BEST teacher. I Love this class. She is very enthusiastic. Don't miss any class. Lots of activities to do, don't ever go late to class or miss deadlines.

Houts is by far the best teacher Iv had at BCC. I am very shy and hated speaking in front of classes and this class changed that. You get to know every single one of your classmates and in a way become like a small family so presenting your 4 speeches is really easy. Really nice teacher and great at teaching. Highly Recommend!

She is a truly great instructor. She is highly organized, clear,and helpful. Her class teaches you a lot about yourself. The tests are not hard, nor are the speeches. Just read the book, and follow the speech outlines and you'll do fine. I thought it would be scary giving speeches, but as it turns out I am great at it.

dwdccde Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This professor is great at teaching speech, and she did make things easy to understand. However, I have never had a teacher make me feel so unwelcome to their class. I attend high school, as well as college, and Ms. Houts did not make high school students comfortable in her classes. She judged them for getting a free education. Horrible woman.

Great speech teacher! I would highly recommend her to anyone. I walked into speech class apprehensive but came out with a good foundation to public speaking. This class will definitely prepare you for the future! The few lectures she does give are very good. I loved the atmosphere she created in the classroom. Work hard and she is willing to help!

You can get an A in the class if you do all the work. I got a B because I HATE public speaking and I read from my notecards during my speeches. She is very nice though. She's probably the best speech teacher.

This class was so interesting! I walked in hoping to just get the semester finished. Then it was fun to get on stage and have everyone laugh at my jokes and listen to my speech. You will walk out loving the class and being a better speaker with some valuable information you can't get anywhere else!

I walked into this class not know anything about how to write an outline or public speaking. There is a lot of assignments, but if you come to class, do what you a required to do, and don't waste her time, you can easily pass her class. I took this over the summer, so I found the group project a little challenging, but overall,it was a good class.

Mrs Houts is the best speech professor you will ever have. If a student walks in the first day nervous, he or she will walk out the last day loving speech. I mean it. Take her for speech.

Came in class not wanting to be there but if you show up everyday and participate there is a good chance for pulling out an "A" in her class.
