He was by far the absolute best teacher I've ever had. If publ speaking isn't your fav sub, it doesn't matter, you'l still enjoy the class AND remember everything he teaches. He's funny & truely enjoys teaching. He's HIGHLY knowledgeable on almost any subject. I have the upmost respect for him as teacher/person. I wish every student could take him!

I miss his passionate teaching method! He is passionate about life anyway! Got an A! He is strict with attendance, but you don't want to miss his class since it's so funny! I enjoyed and wished all professors could learn some of his sense of humor! Great professor! Take him, I would again!!!

the person below me must be an idiot. Jim is the coolest and best teacher you can have for any class. He is always interested in knowing new things, he gives you a specific guide line and you must hit all the criteria. if you do that you are going to get an A in all speeches. He does not choose favorites and is always willing to help.

The class is fairly easy, but the teachers grading on speeches is unfair. If he finds the topics interesting to HIM, you will get a good grade. Topics that bore HIM will get you a C at best. Does not grade fairly. Class is easy and relaxed though.

If you don't have terminal shyness, you can get an A in this class. He is a real stickler for attendance so don't miss a class. He pretty much tells you what will be on his few written tests. Three of the six speeches we did were credit/no credit so only three were graded. He is very energetic and entertaining and you will learn to speak as well.

For someone who used to kill people (navy seal) for a living-this has got to be the kindest, sweetest most gentle man alive. Awesome instructor! Public speaking was exciting and interesting. He makes it "OK" to get up in front of people and talk. Absolute reguirements are attend class and pay attention both of which are easy with him as teacher!

Mr. Ostach likes to be called Jim, his first name, which I don't know why. Anyways, he is a good professor and the presentation he have you do are straightforward. The quizzes are not too difficult. Just listen to what he says about highlighting, and you'll do fine. You'll walk away with an A or B if you do what is require. I recommend taking him.

Great Professor and a great person. Intro. to Public Speaking was very fun and entertaining. If you do not get an A or B you should be ashamed of yourself.
