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.

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.

Debra Thorson is extremely knowable, but also helpful, brutally honest, but also funny and down to earth. Definitely happy she was my professor.

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. Thomson is passionate about what she does. She was very animating and gave excellent constructive criticism. I would take another one of her communication class.

I don't particularly enjoy speaking in public but Ms. Thorson helps alleviate the anxiety. She knows her stuff! She says the more you speak in front of the class the more comfortable you'll be speaking in public. The class requires you to work hard. Be prepared to spend a lot of time preparing for your speeches.

She is good as far as your writing skills is good. She requires you to write the whole speech and she corrects it as English B1A class. I don't recommend her for people who don't need this class for there major. She ask for 7 speech when the others ask only for 4. Otherwise she is good teacher and you will learn a lot.

Although I do not agree with some of her (strong) political comments, she is an AMAZING professor. Her experience, stories, examples all enrich the classroom. She gives you EVERY chance possible to excel and is very helpful. Great sense of humor too!

The best English Teacher I ever have At BC. She is fair. Very knowledgeable in her Subject matter. An epitome of a great Teacher. Never had a dull moment in her class. Her requirements in class are the ways you learn her subject which I like about her. She is very considerate.
