COURSE Requirements
COMM 100 & 101
3 Credits (COMM 100=1 credit; COMM 101=2 credits)

Each student’s final grade is calculated according to the quality of ten requirements the student completes. These requirements are explained below—here briefly and later, in detail. Students are responsible for completing each in a professional manner.

Description of Course: Basics of Public Speaking (COMM 100) is a co-requisite of Speaking Evaluation (COMM 101). Basics of Public Speaking acts as an overview of concepts central to effective public speaking including managing nervousness, researching and organizing information, thinking critically, delivering messages, fielding questions and influencing an audience. Speaking Evaluation focuses on basic concepts central to effective speaking, listening, responding, and critical thinking to an oral context.

Required Textbooks:
Gamble, T.K., & Gamble, M.W. (2016). The public speaking playbook. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publishing.
Bourhis, J., Adams, C., &Titsworth, S. (2009) Style manual for communication studies(3rded.). Boston, MA: McGraw Hill.

Description of Requirements

* Note for Speech Days: Students that change their speech days will automatically have 15% deducted from the speech’s final grade. Changing of speech days is at the discretion of the instructor and may not be allowed; in which case, the student will receive a zero.

2. The Introductory Speech*
For your introduction speech, you will learn the qualities and understandings of what it takes to give a presentation on yourself to your classmates. This speech will prepare you for future interviews in the professional world.

3.The Informative Speech*
Explaining concepts and systems-of-ideas clearly and concisely is a fundamental skill in the practice of public speaking. This assignment calls for you to choose a concept and explain it clearly within an organized framework.

4. The Persuasive Speech*
The art of persuading others is an essential public speaking skill. Building from the previous assignments, this task calls for you to employ a range of persuasive (or rhetorical) devices that you will design to shape public values and actions about a social topic of importance to you.

5. The Special Occasion Speech*
For your last speech, you may select one of four options: (1) a public-relations speech (workplace setting), (2) ceremonial speaking (introductions, toasts, award presentations, etc.), (3) after-dinner speaking, or (4) motivational speaking.

6. Three Self-Evaluation Reports
Examining your own speeches will help you develop your skills and knowledge as a public speaker. Each of your speeches will be videotaped except your final speech. You will then watch and evaluate your own performance. To do so, you will fill out the self-evaluation reports which are provided after the first three speech assignments in this course packet. To earn a good grade, you should provide thorough/insightful comments on the self-evaluation reports. The self-evaluation reports are (1) to be completed following your assigned presentations and (2) must be turned in to your instructor the next class period that directly follows your presentation day.

7. The “Inspirational Speakers” Paper
We’ve all encountered speakers who have inspired us in some way. It may have been a teacher, a politician, a religious figure, an entertainer, a sports figure, a speech from a movie/TV character, a family member you have seen address an audience. Studying their style might prove helpful as you develop who you want to be as a public speaker. In this assignment, you have the opportunity to reflect on a particular public speaker as a way of beginning to explore your understanding of what it takes to be a speaker who makes an impact on an audience. For this paper, choose ONE specific speech by a specific speaker that you have seen or heard (fine to have seen a recording rather than live) which you have found to be inspirational and write a 2 page (double spaced) paper. The assignment is due during week 4 on Blackboard and either in class or in your Section Instructor’s box as specified by your section instructor.

8. The Reflection Paper
Now is your time to look back on your improvements as a speaker throughout the semester. Ask yourself if you have met your goals for this class. Look at where you have improved on your strengths and worked on your weaknesses. Where do you see yourself using these skills acquired in the future? Lastly, provide a summary of your experience in this class. This paper is 2-3 pages, double spaced and proof read.
The assignment is due during week 16 on Blackboard and either in class or in your Section Instructor’s box as specified by your section instructor.
9. Attendance and Participation
Attendance is required for Lab and Lecture. Attendance will be taken daily in your lab class. Each student gets 3 free absences. Thereafter, each absence will result in a 10 point loss, regardless of reason. Free absences cannot be taken on your speech day without the penalty noted above.
Participation assignments will be assigned in class for both lecture and lab. The point value and due date for each assignment will be announced in class. If a student misses an assignment submission due date for any reason, unless prearranged and cleared with instructor, they will not be allowed to make up the points.
* Note: All assignments calls for your best writing. It is expected that your assignment will be a final and not a rough draft.
Extra Credit: For up to five points, a student may attend a public speech (event must be approved by instructor) and write a one page critique of the speech using at least five course concepts. A student may complete three of these critiques for a potential total of 15 extra credit points for the semester. All Extra Credit is due November 15.
24 Hour Rule: If a student would like to challenge the scoring on an assignment, the student should thoroughly read all feedback and wait for 24 hours after receiving the grade to contact the instructor.

CODE OF CONDUCT: Communication Studies 100 & 101

As an undergraduate student enrolled in COMM 100: Basics of Public Speaking and COMM 101: Speaking Evaluation, you are required to know and enact the following:

1. I understand that swearing, racial slurs, sexual harassment, and rude comments made toward the instructor or another classmate will not be tolerated in this class.

2. I understand that I am responsible for meeting all of the scheduled submission dates on time to complete the class successfully.

3. I understand that I am allowed 3 absences in the 101 lab (only days when I have no assigned responsibility). Participation will be out of 50 points, representing part of your final grade in the end. After 3 absences your participation grade will go down for each day you miss then after.

4. I understand that when I present my speech on its assigned day, I will be expected to present myself professionally—in demeanor, appearance, and preparation. As such, I will be in class on time, completely prepared to present my speech. Also, I understand that I should not chew gum or wear a baseball cap during my presentation.

5. I understand that test assignments and speeches may not be made up unless: (1) I advise my instructor ahead of time or (2) make arrangements, if possible, for another person to fill my assigned presentation date. Make up quizzes will only be allowed if arrangements have been made prior to the test date of the discretion of the TA or lecture. If you miss a presentation or test, deductions and makeups will be based on the teacher’s discretion.

6. I understand that, when presenting my speech, I must come to class prepared with all materials needed for my presentation. If I do not have all of my materials for my assigned speech day, I will still be required to present my speech (although such unpreparedness will most likely result in a grade reduction).
7. I understand that if I plagiarize any part of any of any of my speeches, I will receive a zero on the assignment. I also understand that I will upload each of my speech outlines onto SafeAssignment to ensure that my ideas are either original or properly cited.
8. I understand that hand written assignments will not be accepted. You, the student, must have a copy of each assignment for matters of error.
9. Penalties will be assigned for ALL late work. Students that change their speech days will automatically have 15% deducted from the speech’s final grade.
10. I understand that if I’m not happy with any of my grades, I will wait 24 hours before contacting my teacher.
11. I understand all of the stipulations outlined here and agree to abide by those stipulations.

According to the website of the Dean of Students at UNC, “Plagiarism is the act of attempting to pass another’s words or ideas off as one’s own. It is also using another’s words or ideas and not giving the original author credit for them. Plagiarism ranges from using a single word, in the case of a word or phrase an author has ‘coined,’ to claiming ownership of an entire document written by someone else. It can also apply to works written by one author that have been substantially reworked or edited by another. The university further defines plagiarism as ‘the act of appropriating the written, artistic, or musical composition of another, or portions thereof; or the ideas, language, or symbols of the same and passing them off as the product of one’s own mind. Plagiarism includes not only the exact duplication of another’s work, but also the lifting of a substantial or essential portion thereof.’ This definition and other important policy information is available by accessing the Student Code of Conduct.” (http://www.unco.edu/dos/academicIntegrity/students/definingPagiarism.html)
