SPCM 110 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Requirements: 5 speeches, filmed before a minimum of 5 adults (he will count) and absolutely no children - this is very hard for adult students. The speech must be done on VHS or a DVD and MAILED to his PO Box. You can't use youtube, jump drive, email or any other way to submit your work - this professor needs to update his syllabus, it's not 1990.

In response to 7/2010 comment, you are not the only one that has said that and I found that there is some truth to it.

His ego gets in the way of his teaching. Highly critical and doesnt pay attention to questions being asked. He also gives tremendous critic without giving tips. If you went into this class enjoying the freedom of speech and thinking you can excel, you will be mistaken.

This professor is what you call a dino. He is very wordy and has many many rules. Its impossible to please this man...air on the side of caution if you are reaching for an A. He is highly critical! He also needs to utilize technology. Basically he should learn how to actually teach students rather than dictate, no one learns that way!
