Course Introduction

This five-month class will study both speech and forensics. We’ll learn about impromptu speaking, expository speech, informative and current event speeches, interpretative speech, and how to write a memorable speech. My goal is to help you grow as a researcher, performer, and speaker through this class through learning valuable skills, real-life experience, and exercises to build your confidence.
