The class taught good ways to be able to speak to an audience. Three speeches ? informative, demonstrative and persuasive ? and a midterm and final. Given free range on speeches and very helpful in calming down nerves and anxiety.

For everyone that is on the Forensics Team, this is an easy 1- hour credit, which you can do three times (for a total of three hours). You're an idiot if you don't take advantage of this.

Grades easily on speeches, Don't go over time. Makes the class more difficult than it should be but is still a great teacher. What you learn from the class is much more than the grade you get.

Mike is a good teacher, he jokes a lot in class so if you're uncomfortable about being picked on "jokingly" then don't take him. He's easy and fair. I enjoyed his class.

Dr. Applin is a great guy, he cares about getting you to be able to talk in front of a crowd. He is funny, a real cool guy, always chill and discuss everyday things in class. Take him even if you don't need to. I loved it!!!!
