Mrs. Brilhart was very nice and graded fairly, but her lectures on how to speak were not very informative. Telling your students not to take pauses or be unprepared is common sense and should not be repeated before every speech. I never thought she graded unfairly, as I felt like my speeches went against her opinions but were still graded well.

The Professor thinks that extemporaneous is defined as well thought out, planed and practiced; the exact opposite definition. She then takes her definition into the fundaments of her curriculum. There is a good reason why this professor has been part-time for 25 years.

COM 115 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She is a nice lady and likes to make jokes. If you like speech, are outgoing and smart, or took it in high school, you'll do great in her class no problem. If you need to be taught to be a good speaker take it with someone else because background knowledge is probably what got me an A in the class.

Very nice lady. Definitely has her favorites, but still relatively easy class. She is picking about her outlines though!

How nice she is on grading depends on how much she likes you. If you get on her good side then she won't be too tough of a teacher but if you're not she will give you trouble. Her grading system is extremely harsh. She will give you a 0 on your assignment for some minor mistakes. If you can take from anyone else, DO IT.

She's great. Friendly and easily approachable if you don't understand or just need help with your speech. As long as you actually practice your speech and come well prepared, you should do fine.

She is extremely nice and always willing to help you when needed. But she is a killer when it comes to grading. I ended up getting a B, but that is only because I worked extremely hard.

She can be a little slow in her speaking manner but overall she is a very good teacher. She won't hand the grades to you but she's not super tough. I think she is a spectacular teacher.

Overall, this class was a lot easier than what I initially expected. Basically, if you do everything she asks in the beginning i.e. outline speeches correctly, include all required elements in speeches, and turn in homework on time you will be fine. Try to humor her and laugh at her jokes. If you get on her good side you will be fine! Smile!
