Course description: Now that you've covered the basics of public speaking, you're ready to "take it to the next level." In CW 10B, students will work towards mastery of the skills they attained in CW 10A. Besides a review of informative and persuasive extemporaneous speaking, you will add to your public address repertoire impromptu speaking, interview skills, and group communication skills. The culminating project in the course will be a real-world speaking occasion, arranged by the student, to be critiqued by the class and the instructor. Regular communication-theory reading and writing assignments will focus on, among other topics, body language, interacting with an audience, and overcoming anxiety.
