Students must have access to a digital video camera for this class.
You will video record your speeches and upload them to a website separate from Bb/Vista called connectlucas.com.
Students must have access to a professional presentation space to deliver and videotape their presentation.
Speeches may NOT be delivered in living rooms, dens, kitchens, or attics!
For each speech, students must arrange an audience of at least six (6) adults. The audience must be introduced prior to the speech and visible throughout the presentation. The audience must complete an evaluation sheet for the speech presentation.
Late assignments (Speeches, online assignments, discussion postings, etc.) are not accepted unless appropriate documentation is provided to substantiate the claim.
Speeches must be RECEIVED by the date due. Students will receive a 30 point reduction in their speech grade if an assignment is submitted within 24 hours of the deadline. There will be a 50 point reduction in their speech grade if an assignment is submitted after that.
This semester, the class work for the course will be computer intensive and will require students to have access to the Internet.
Using our Bb Vista "Virtual Classroom," you will be required to complete assignments, address weekly topics on the electronic discussion board and possibly participate in chats.
Since these courses usually fill up, there will be no extra time for extra or make-up speeches. If you know that you have a conflict with any deadline, you should sign up for a different section.
Keep in mind, your enrollment in this class begins on the first day of the semester!
