This is my favorite of the semester! Susan is an amazing teacher and women. If you pay attention and take notes, you can not fail. Susan creats a comfortable, enjoyable learning enviornment. Highly recomend this class. No, there is no textbook, just a $4 packet that has everything you will need for class.. better than a $200 book in my opinion :)

She was such an easy teacher! She basically writes about 90% of your speech and you just have to state why you chose your topic. All of her quizzes and tests are on stuff she writes on the board. So make sure to quickly look over notes. Such a easy going teacher and super easy! Has a Joke of the day each class to keep everyone happy!

Susan is disconnected with this era. Her age & issues in life with her husband & how her girls have disappointed her wastes teaching time She unprofessionally discusses how it was in 1960's & she was liberated to do what they did back then Not accredited text book she has a want to be author photocopy pages for 3 to 4 dollars forces you to buy it.

Johnson is out dated and does not carry a professional manner. Unappropriated jokes makes students uncomfortable NOT allowing to use a credited textbook is questionable as she sells her unorganized prints at NO use , Do Not command her as is short of short memory and quakity

Speech 100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is absolutely horrible! Avoid at all costs! She is unkind to DRC students (students with disabilities) shes way to old to be teaching and forgets things that she told you and had already agreed to. She is incredibly innapropriate with her stupid jokes of the day, making jokes about people killing themselves and such. I hate this woman!

Susan is a wonderful professor, she helps with anything you need and is very informative. She gives partially completed outlines for you to finish. The speeches are easy but you need to pay attention take notes and study.

Her class is enjoyable when she is talking about anything but speech related material. She does write the 3 speeches that are required to give. Doing well requires going to class and abiding by her deadlines. Take great notes it helps!

She is awesome. Opinionated and likes things done her way. She writes your speeches for you. You simply have to make adjustments. Pleasurable lady and genuinely cares about her students success in her class. I would seek her out for future classes. You will be more confident about public speaking after taking this class.

Susan is a great teacher. You only have to do three speeches and she practically writes them for you. She really cares about helping students become better public speakers. Just come to class, pay attention,do things exactly as she wants you to do them and give some effort and you will definitely get a good grade.

Mrs. Johnson was not a very helpful teacher, she is very strict and will not care if you have any anxiety with public speaking. She does not make things enjoyable just bearable. She caused several students to drop the class because of how blunt and how uncaring she is.

I LOVED THIS TEACHER! SHE HAS HER OPINION ON HOW THINGS SHOULD GO WITH PUBLIC SPEAKING. SEEING AS SHE WAS A PRODUCER AT A HIGH CLASS NEWS BUSINESS FOR MANY YEARS. SHE TELLS IT HOW IT IS. SHE IS VERYN FUNNY, BUTIF YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO CAN'T LAUGH OR IS JUST STUCK UP AND HIGH ON YOURSELF YOU WON'T ENJOY HER CLASS. ONE OF THE TOP 5 TEACHERS I'VE HAD.

Here is an example of an inappropriate situation that occurred:a female was wearing shorts and was sitting with her legs to her chest and Susan, in front of the entire class, told her to "put her legs down because no one wants to see her cooch and that if she didn't she would be asked to leave" even though nothing was visible. Avoid this teacher!

Johnson was not a very helpful teacher. She was very inappropriate and not very professional at all. She grades based off of her opinions of you as a person. If you want to get up on her good list, be about as liberal as you can be, and voice it. Don't have an opinion, doing your own research is HIGHLY discouraged. You WILL be chastised for it.

By far the worst teacher I have ever had. She makes up her own definitions for words. Your speech grades are graded on how well she likes you. She tells inappropriate jokes everyday. She makes inappropriate comments about students in front of the class.....Is constantly talking about her students to other students.

Susan is the best teacher ever! I took this class fast track & am so sad its over. Only had to do 3 speeches and she gives you "speech suggestions" which pretty much is writing the whole speech for you! Shes funny as hell too tells a joke everyday. Gives candy and overall is an awesome teacher

I loved this class. She is very fun to be around, and does not put up with any crap from anybody. She runs a tight ship, but if you pay attention and study for the quizzes, midterm, and final exam, you will do well. She lets you pick your speech topics and once you submit them she writes the speeches (3 of them) for you. She is a great teacher!

She's so cool! She gives you candy during the mid term and final because studies show that smelling sweets makes you do better on test. She does a lot of random extra credit that she says she's not going to do, but yeah... If you have any questions, all you have to do is ask! She'll be happy to help you with anything and everything!
