Class Experience

- Students will learn the importance of looking at people when you speak to them
- Students will improve their skills in making eye contact when delivering a speech.  
- Students will be challenged to practice this in all aspects their interpersonal communication
I have been involved in public speaking all my life.  The first speech I remember making was as a 5 yr old at the YMCA!   My certification to teach in Florida was in Public Speaking (I let it expire as I was not in the classroom at the time).  At an university in Zambia I have taught public speaking.   Additionally, many years of my life have been lived as a pastor communicating to students and adults on a weekly basis.  In short, teaching people how to communicate in public settings more effectively is a passion of mine.
I will give some optional assignments to practice getting better at eye contact in various situations. 
A one page document will be provided prior to the first session.
One time class, but if these learners are in other speech classes with me I will continue to give input.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
