Speech 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's an excellent teacher. He expects you to care and do your work as assigned. It's not an easy A, but you can get one if you follow assignments as required. A lot of people dropped or receive a failing grade because they are not invested in the class. If you go to class you will not fail. I enjoyed his class and would take another class with him.

Speech 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Is it an easy A? No. You have to spend several hours researching, organizing, remembering, and practicing your speech. But he tells you exactly what he wants in your speech. He gives an outline on what he wants in your speech. If you want a good grade, you just need to include everything he asks from you in your speech!

spe 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

This class was difficult for me. It really did help improve my confidence speaking in public as I am very reserved and bashful. The teacher is difficult to approach and rarely gives a straight answer but I guess you learn the hard way in this class. The class itself helped each other by being easy to deliver speeches to and being supportive.

Speech 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

GREAT TEACHER! Very clear on what he wants, however he does grade a bit difficult. Very interesting and fun class! Hated Speech until I took this class. He'll make you laugh. Just don't be a clown or come late and he'll be your best friend. DON'T BE ABSENT UNLESS NECESSARY.

I had Mr. Murdock for speech 101 n it was a great class. He expects you to be there and be on time. You can read the book to help you inhance your pulic speaking, but that is all up to you. Easy class if you follow exactly what is on his outlines and practice. Take the class if you are serious n not just trying to pass. Overall really fun class

I thought I would hate speech, but i ended up really liking it because tom was such a great teacher, and i had awesome people in my class. it's not easy, and tom's not afraid to embarrass you, but if you do what you're supposed to you won't be embarrassed. funny guy, has a lot of good stories. public speaking isn't scary anymore!

Murdock is a hard nosed ex cop. Don't take his speech class for an easy A. He emphasizes that it is SPEECH and not READING. If you read your speech you wrote he will stop you and grill you. He is tough but fun if you make the effort to attend and participate.

Hilarious teacher. Is clear on what he wants. Attendance is mandatory and he gives tardies however you learn a lot in his class and he helps you with your speeches a lot. Its actually a really fun class for speech plus I think he's the best Speech teacher.
