Professional Communication/Speech

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am excited that you are in my class and look forward to a great semester together. We will be looking at the various components of communication including how to effectively give a speech in front of others; the various formats of speaking (informative, persuasive, etc) and how to best prepare for those speeches; we will also be learning about the principles behind communication including listening, nonverbal and verbal communication and other contexts that lend to the communication process. Students should learn tools that will benefit them in both their personal and future professional life.

Supplies: Students are expected to bring a 1.5 inch binder, a pencil/pen and paper in the binder to class each day. We will be using textbooks in the classroom and also working on worksheets, etc. It is very important that you have this binder each day in the classroom.

Let's have a great semester learning about communication!
