Apparently you need to take Profesor Smith's class online because in person he isn't very nice. If you are not very social and tend to be introverted you will not get an A even if you have prefect attendance and get good grades on your quizzes. He is very harsh on your speeches and doesn't sympathizes if you have a speech problem.

Since my first online class was not very organized, I was surprised the Professor had created an online environment that was very easy to follow, which allowed me to easily excel in the class. When plagiarism presented itself in class, Professor Smith dealt with it promptly and succinctly. I would definitely take another class with Professor Smith.

Probably one of the best professors I have ever had. I had an intense fear of communicating in front of others and this helped me improve A LOT! Professor Smith is EXTREMELY helpful, make sure you do all the assignments and participate!

Attendance is mandatoy. You have to read the textbook before class because he gives pop quizzes.... Doesn't really teach the material but the class discussions are very intresting. He is a major grammar and spelling nazi! His tests are usually very clear and give you a study guide before the mid term and final. I got an A in his class.

I took online 8-weeks Speech 151 class. I liked that the professor had lectures on Etudes, it was helpful. The lectures contained the most important points from the material. The rules and assignments were clear: if you want "A" do your homework, get good scores on the quizzes and exams, do discussions regularly.

Attendance is mandatory. Participation could indeed increase you grade. he grades a little tough on the speeches. But he really gives good feedback in order for you to improve. Stay confident even while nervous when giving speeches.

I enjoyed this online class. The Professor responds to e-mails, and posts grades for submitted work promptly. His assignments are clear. If you want a good grade, complete the assignments, tests and discussions on time, and you will be successful in this class. This Speech class is perfect if you are timid. All the interaction is online.

I took the 8 week on-line course and love the material. I really learned so much that I can apply in my daily life. If you do the reading, the tests and the assignments, you will earn the A. He just wants to see the effort. Great Class!

I took Speech 151 online with Mr. Smith. He is the first I have encountered who was so organized in his curriculum. I always new how and when to prepare for each test, assignment, etc. I walked away with great knowledge on communicating in small groups. I enjoyed the class.

He does not tolerate negativity, he assigns 3 graded speeches that are easy to do if you just put work into it. Attendance is mandatory. If you don't like public speaking, he helps get you out of that shell.
