Public Speaking: The View from the Front of the Room?

Public speaking is a subset of the much broader act of  communication. Whether in the classroom, the workplace, or in our own communities, success is increasingly dependent on strong public communication skills.

Many people experience anxiety speaking in front of others. Your COM 101 assignments will give you practice in a supportive environment to reduce anxiety and develop confidence.
