Run! Run now and do not look back. Mr. Fitzgerald changes the rules, requires you to purchase extra books, gives little to no direction and then blows off any complaints. The best directions yet have been to - Figure it out. Worst decision of college career to take this professor's course.

He's verbally dramatic and humorous at times. Understands students fear of speaking in public and is reassuring. Expects you know, but does NOT teach how to speak or do powerpoints. Expects Professional presentations, proper research papers & citing sources. Teaches mostly from book. Best if you ask him questions & follow his instructions.

Easy IF you follow his instructions for Speeches and Writing Assignments "EXACTLY" for A. Focus on doing best on Speeches worth the most points. Quizzes & Tests can be hard if you do NOT study. Do extra credit paper to raise grade. He expects you to know APA citing and PowerPoint but he does NOT teach it in class. Best to ask questions in class.

I'll keep it brief. He is fair on his grading and the workload for his online class was very reasonable. He responds to questions quickly and grades within a few days of the due date. What else can you ask for?

4 Presentations: Introductory, Informative, Persuasive, & Ceremonial. There is enough info in the text to do well. Weekly quizzes & online discussions. Discussions based on 5 Communication principles that are NOT spelled out in the book. About 1/4 of the questions on the Mid-Term & the Final are not in the text.

I rather enjoyed this class - he was very energetic 99% of the time and seemed passionate about communication. Very interesting class! He is quick to give his input and to put in grades which is a great thing. Also a really relaxed class so you don't have to flip out about everything.

His speech assignments are very clear, he's very easy in grading. If you're looking for an easy class, this is the guy. He goes over the chapters in power points, and bases the quizzes on the PPTs. If you have the book, you can highlight all the stuff that is on the PPTs.

Reading the bad comments on here, I think the students probably just didn't do their work. With every speech, he gives you a rubric so you know what to do. Instructions are clear. The class was so easy as long as you do your work. The book is needed. I recommend him, he is a really good teacher!

SPC1608 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Dont expect a clear answer from Him. Useless... I sent a multiple question email and his response had nothing to do with what i had asked... This happened a few times as well as leaving a voice mail that was never responded to. seems pretty unfair to spend all this money and you cant get a simple question answered.
