Very helpful professor and makes even you feel fairly comfortable about speaking to the class. Just make sure you follow his guidelines and the rubrics, and practice your speeches.

This class as very interesting. The professor does a great job helping people feel comfortable with public speaking. For the midterm and final, just study the items that are on the review sheet he gives you and you will do fine.

Awesome teacher. Fun sense of humor. Very patient and respectful, especially for those who don't enjoy public speaking. Follow the clear guidelines for each speech, watch your time, be confident, and you'll be fine. Midterm and final are VERY TRICKY but not impossible. Do well on your speeches and extra credit and you'll get an A in the class.

Easy. He's a little scatterbrained and his assigned work is tedious because it's always the same. But it's an easy A if you go to class.

It's his way or the highway, if you are not comfortable in speech and have no experience in it, this might be the class for you. He requires things that he admits is easier and less desireable even if you're more comfortable with advanced forms. I was on the speech team in my high school and won and did well at competitions but not in his class

excellent teacher, very clear on what he expects gives example speeches and outlines. midterm and final are mostly common sense and based right off the powerpoints and study guides. Only boring part was when other people were presenting, but definately watch your time limits in this class. Would take him again.

Not a bad teacher. Full term classes have four papers, mid-term and a final. Class is generally boring, but better than com. If do well on your speeches and study for the mid-term and final you should have an "A".

Boring. I was in an express class. He wanted to have a discussion format, or just present his own opinions for the whole class, so there was no time for lecture. If you follow his instructions and watch your time, an A is guaranteed.

an easy class. he's very helpful with people having a fear of speaking and takes that into account during your speech. I'm not sure about the other post about not being able to speak because you were late- if you call him (even 10 min before class) and let him know; he'll accomodate you and work with you.NO work aside from speeches and tests.easy A

Awesome teacher!! This class was by far one of the easiest classes I have ever taken, and yet it was the one I was most afraid to take. He is very understanding, and reasonable when it comes to giving the actual speech. I would recommend this class for anyone who is dreading speech! EASY A!

Mr.F seemed like a good teacher at first. but was bit unfair. He gave me all A and B+'s on every speech but one. The one he wouldn't let me read,because it was late yet let someone else! So got a class grade of D! This is even after getting extra credit from seeing HIS stupid Play! Don't be fooled He has his favorites and grades accordingly!

Outstanding instructor - highly recommended. On point, helpful, all the tools are provided - you just have to do the work and get up there and knock out your speeches. Keeps things very interesting and ties in real life with the subject matter. If you have trouble speaking in front of people Dr Fitzgerald will put you at ease.
