CDM 206 Effective Public Speaking

3 Credits

As an introduction to the basic principles and methods of public speaking, with the application of theory expressed through classroom presentations, students prepare and deliver speeches of information and persuasion on topics related to their major field of study. They also take part in oral exercises which have been designed to increase their self-confidence and to enhance the clarity and expressiveness of their speech. Students learn and practice the following rhetorical and presentation strategies which are so useful in the professional workplace and in the classroom: successful adaptation to the audience and the environment; development and organization of the coherent outline; selection of appropriate supporting material and arguments; and the preparation and use of effective visual aids. The techniques of active listening and the use of visual aids for supportive audience behavior are also taught.

Prerequisite(s): Successfully complete ENG 102  with a minimum grade of “C” and have Sophomore Standing.
