Summer Quarter Begins Today

June 21, 2010 at 3:26 pm 3 comments

Learn the Art of Public Speaking hosts the writing, images and ideas of students enrolled in Fundamentals of Effective Speech at the south campus of Southern State Community College.  And soon, twenty students will start contributing to this blog.  Please join me in welcoming them.

A class blog, like this one,  encourages students to find their voice, express their fears and their insights. Students write about things that happen in class or share what helps them feel supported. Blogging is a bit like stepping out in front of an audience. So, it’s good practice for finding one’s voice, for gaining confidence and trust.

I’m learning that interactions like the ones on this blog can connect us through our stories and our experiences creating a sense of belonging, a sense that although we are all different and unique we are all in this together. And together, we become stronger, less afraid, more willing to show our true colors.

There IS one thing that would take Learn the Art of Public Speaking to the next level – YOU!  and that includes speech class alumni.  Please share your thoughts and comments. Join us.

    I really think I am going to enjoy this class. Candees voice is soft and just invites you to listen to her speak. I do not like public speaking but im sure going to give it a go and having a professor who loves her job is a bonus.
