and evaluation of oral messages and presentations. May be taken to meet the general education
communication studies.
Prerequisites: None. May be taken to meet the core requirement.
Required Textbook: Pearson, Judy G., Paul Nelson, Scott Titsworth & Lynn Harter. (2013) Human

 Overcome their fear of public speaking.
 Understand the communication process and the importance of verbal and nonverbal
communication.
 Identify, discuss, and apply major intrapersonal and interpersonal communication concepts and
principles.
 Introduce students to effective group discussion techniques.

Attendance requirements: Students are required to attend class regularly and promptly. Being
in class means that you arrived on time and stayed until class is over. More than one unexcused
absence will hurt your performance in this class and is automatic -2 points from the total point
system. If you are not present in class, you are still responsible for the material covered. Homework
must be completed on the specified due date. You may make up a test or a speech with verification that
circumstances were beyond your control. If you know that you will be absent, please notify me before
class with a phone call so arrangements for missed assignment may be made. All late or missed
assignments must be submitted the day you return to class. Late assignments will not receive full
credit and will usually receive a minimum 5 point reduction. WBU policy states that students must
attend 70% of classes to successfully pass.
Disability statement: In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), it is the
policy of Wayland Baptist University that no otherwise qualified person with a disability be excluded
1
from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any education
program or activity in the university. The Coordinator of Counseling Services serves as the coordinator
of students with a disability and should be contacted concerning accommodation requests at (806) 2913765. Documentation of a disability must accompany any request for accommodations.
Course requirements and grading criteria: This course is a combination of an interactive,
cooperative experience between the students and the instructor. The format is designed to integrate
lectures, small group work, discussions, and student presentations. Student active participation is
encouraged. Chapter readings of the textbook and homework will be assigned in advance. It is
important that all students read the assigned chapters prior to class and come well prepared to participate
in the discussion of the material. For all written homework, proper grammar and correct spelling are
essential. All written assignment and speech outlines must be typed double-spaced. Only hard copy
will be accepted. Homework and outlines are not accepted via e-mail or fax. University students
are expected to conduct themselves according to the highest standards of academic honesty.
Academic misconduct for which a student is subject to penalty includes all forms of cheating,
such as illicit possession of examinations or examination materials, forgery, or plagiarism.
Plagiarism is the presentation of the work of another as one’s own work. It is the student’s
responsibility to be familiar with penalties associated with plagiarism stated in the catalog.

** A grade of incomplete is changed if
the work required is completed prior to
the last day of the next long (10-15
weeks) term, unless the instructor
designates an earlier date for
completion. If the work is not
completed by the appropriate date, the
I is converted to a grade of F. An
incomplete notation cannot remain on
the student’s permanent record and
must be replaced by the qualitative
grade (A-F) by the date specified in the
official University calendar of the next
regular term. An incomplete turned to
a qualitative grade will be indicated by
the notation I/grade on the student
