COMM 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: B

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.

Speech 151 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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!

Speec121 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

Sp151 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

Spech1869 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.
