Hello Comm 1101 Students!
I'm looking forward to a great semester with all of you! This course, as we'll discuss on the first day, is fulfills the Civic Life and Ethics requirement, which means that aside from being a skills-based course that teaches you the mechanics of public speaking, we'll also delve into why and how using one's voice in public is a necessary part of sustaining a functioning society and creating social change.
This blog will be a space for us to continue class discussions, post speech topics, ask questions, and for anyone who opts in to participate in the Service-Learning option, this blog will be a space for reflection on your community work. (This will all be explained on day one!).
