Comm 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

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!

COMS 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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.

Comm 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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

SPeech 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

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!!

COM101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

Speech 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A

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.
