Mr. B is a really good public speaking teacher! His grading system is a little tough, but you still learn a lot from him. Has fun speech exercises. Grades on the improvement of speeches. Book is only used once, during the midterm. 4 speeches, 1 midterm, a final, and loss of anxiety. Strive for that A, and it's yours! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5 Week course with 1 speech a week. He lets you pick your own topics but is a hard grader. You get comfortable over time in class and he doesn't choose people to present, it's all voluntary. you use the book once, only for the midterm. the midterm is like common sense so you really don't need to buy it.

I have found a new interest in public speaking because of Mr. B! He was such a funny and entertaining person. By far my favorite class I have taken at Pierce. I was so nervous in the beginning but his critiques helped me reduce my nervousness. He is a hard grader but he makes you appreciate public speaking. It was a very entertaining class. TAKE IT

Mr. B is funny guy and he truly, as stated by others, will do everything in his power to reduce the nervousness. He understands that it is not easy to stand in front of 30 people and talk for 5 min, but don't expect him to baby you around. His tests were straight forward, 5 speeches, few in class participation games..overall an entertaining class!!

Let's you know what he expects from the beginning. He is entertaining and does a great job of reducing what is a very stressful subject for most people. Makes it a fun learning experience where you get a chance to practice speaking on topics that interest you. 1 of 5 speeches requires some research. Uses games and exercises to get you going.

He is a pretty good professor. If you have to take speech I would recommend him. He has a very odd sense of humor, but most people in the class found him funny. He really sets up a comfortable environment though. If you hate public speaking, he'll try to make you as comfortable as possible. He is a tough grader, but if you do the work you'll be ok.

Great professor but a bit of a hard grader. He makes the class fun to go to and attendance is mandatory. If you're a shy person it may be tough at first. Overall great class as long as you improve on your speeches. Midterm & final were easy.

Good class to take. This class offers exercises that help open up. teaches you to speak in front up people with certain levels of confidence. If your shy this class might be a bit intimidating but can break your shell. overall the class is fun and interesting. I had a good experience, he is very nice, but will grade you on effort.

He's a very nice guy and very entertaining. He tries hard to keep everyone interested, and does it successfully. He's not the easiest grader ever, but i say hes fair. This class isn't an easy A, but i dont believe any speech class is. I'd recommend him, very laid back and fun.

This teacher is AWESOME! I never really had an interest for speech and I always thought it was a boring class to take, but this professor makes speech fun and it helps you outside the class as well. Im still enrolled in the class right now, and HIGHLY recommend this instructor. Makes the class fun, and you will not be sorry. You can't go wrong.

I had one of the best times in his class. Most funnest class ever and is a great teacher. However, the way he grades is horrible. His moods determine of how good a grade u get or not. Some who do bad in the class get good grades, but others who improve, get worse.It makes no sense. I'd rather had gotten the grade i deserved than had a fun class.

EASY CLASS! you must either be extremely stupid or never show up to fail this class. the only thing is that he wastes time talking about random topics then getting the speeches done. i recommend you take this class.

Easy, fun class. Very relaxed and entertaining. He turns public speaking into a game, and the goal - to improve - was met by everyone in the class. Even the shyest of people can deliver a good speech with Mr. B's help.

Very nice guy, great class. His jokes got a little silly after a while, but still a great teacher. I would recommend him to anyone that has a fear of public speaking, because this class will help you get over it.
