MA Speech Communication; BA Psychology
With Cabrillo College since 2002
WELCOME Spring 17 Students!
Both of my Public Speaking Comm 1 courses are HYBRID courses, meaning that much of the work will be done independently by you online (using Canvas), though we will still meet in person for your delivery of speeches. Mandatory meetings are:
Saturdays 2/11. 3/11, 4/8, 5/6 room 319, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
These meetings are mandatory (really, mandatory-- must be there. Yup). If you cannot make any of these dates, please do not sign up for my courses this semester. Also, if you do not attend the first meeting and/or fail to log in the first week, you will be dropped.
Required awesome text: Dan Rothwell's PRACTICALLY SPEAKING
Online Comm 6 (listening) courses are SEPARATE from my online Comm 1 courses, though they may be taken in conjunction to fulfill the co-requisite. We have no meetings for the ONLINE Comm 6 and you are expected to log into Canvas (accessed from Cabrillo's home page under distance ed.) the first day of the semester to confirm your spot, read the syllabus, and orient yourself with the discussion board and the assignments. No text is required for this course.
About me: I love teaching communication classes! I create a safe place for you to learn new concepts and try new skills. This is going to be better than you expect!
