You're Invited!

Based on the results of last week's poll, Wednesday evenings between 8:00 and 9:00pm seem to be the most ideal for this class. We will not meet every week, but I'm looking forward to meeting with you this week! :)

There is NO Agenda!

Just pour yourself a cup of coffee or a glass of tea and relax as you log in ready to chat. You may want to bring a list of questions you wish to ask up to this point about your upcoming speech, any of your assignments, or any topics from the class you wish to discuss. Any personal grade questions should be reserved to private discussions between you and the instructor. I will also bring some cool things I would like to share. This is a wonderful opportunity to bond and to get to know one another better. Sometimes online classes can seem like an "isolated island" unless we come together through a social medium every so often. I want you to feel like we are a sense of community where we support one another and where you have an instructor who cares. It will also create a "comfort zone" amongst your classmates since you are all novice oral presenters. When you present orally to the class, know that it will be a safe haven for making mistakes. You are new to this, and you are human. BELIEVE in yourself. I BELIEVE in you. We all BELIEVE in one another. You can do this! :)

Please RSVP with an acceptance or a regret.
