I saved this class for last I don't like public speaking. However I'm glad I took her class I was able to over come that fear and she gives good advice. Mrs Thorson knows the subject well. We received the syllabus as well as a speech schedule which was awesome to know what to expect. Loved this class

Syllabus was emailed to everyone first week and paper copy handed out first day. Last person must not have paid attention. It was a summer class and only 4 weeks long. She helped all of us overcome our fears. Good class.

COMM B1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

WASTE OF TIME! I am shocked she has such a good rating. I think some people might be confusing her with her daughter that also teaches at the school. She didn't give us the syllabus until 3 weeks in. She would marked several people absent even if you are there. She would confuse us with her other class and thought she had already told us something.

Took this course over 4 weeks during summer, it was overwhelmingly tough at a few times along the way. Mrs. Thorson makes class very fun and interesting but as others have said, she is very bold but not in a bad way. She turned our class into some great speakers.

Public Speaking Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

Mrs. Thorson is very knowledgeable public speaking. Often times her assignments were vague. She is very opinionated, and class would often times turn into a debate class with students who did not agree with her views. I would have liked more focus and practice with public speaking, and less discussion on social issues.

Mrs. Thorson is a great teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed her class. She is fair and gives constructive critism. Lots of speeches and lots of work but you will learn a lot.
