[P.3] Halfway There: Winding Down the Third Quarter

By Patrick C. Ames | Classroom Updates

Mar 15

Midterms are right around the corner, and as the year is beginning to thaw, the class is winding down the third quarter.

Currently, students have had numerous formal and informal speaking opportunities as they have lead the class, created original orations, delivered declamations, developed and shared both impromptu speeches as well as impromptu evaluations.​

As we near the final weeks of this quarter, we will begin our mid-term. The exam is divided into two portions: 50% will be based upon an impromptu speech and 50% will be based on the exams, assessments, and reading completed throughout the quarter.

Students are highly encouraged to review past exams as well as the chapters covered in Speech prior to taking the mid-term. As always, the goal has never been to just prepare each student for a test; rather, the goal always is to help each student to more fully develop as a person and a leader.
