COM 200F - Public Speaking - Learning Community
Course Description: This learning community will focus on reading and analyzing the language of great speeches. The speeches selected for study will include those that inform, persuade and inspire. They will be chosen with gender, cultural, and historical differences in mind. In a departure from traditional speech courses, this course will review speeches not only from the political arena, but from the entertainment industry and from great fictional works. Students will isolate and identify components of proxemics, kinesics, paralinguistics, haptics and dress. They will compare and contrast speeches of different media settings: small group, radio, television and the Internet.
