Title

Spring 2021: ENWR 2800-003 - Public Speaking

When

Mon. Feb 1, 2021 - Thu. May 6, 2021 (14 weeks)
Every Tuesday, Thursday from 2:00 PM to 3:15 PM

This section of this course must be taken with RELG 1559 - Contemplative Lab. ENWR 2800-003 fulfills the Second Writing Requirement (SWR). 

This is an inquiry-based approach to the development of a confident, engaging, and ethical public speaking style. Beyond practical skills, this course emphasizes rhetorical thinking: what are the conventions of public speaking? Where are there opportunities to deviate from convention in ways that might serve a speech's purpose? How might we construct an audience through the ways we craft language and plan the delivery of our speech?
