ENS 106 Public Speaking

Welcome to the Public Speaking LibGuide!

Welcome to ENS106/Public Speaking!

I am elated that you are here. For many of you, Public Speaking may be an elective or a required course and for others it may simply be a course that you have been anticipating taking ever since you completed your EN004 and RD004 prerequisites. Whatever your reason for taking Public Speaking, we are excited to help you learn how to become a more confident and competent speaker.

Public Speaking is an art. Its pedigree can be traced back to ancient Greece and Rome with Greek philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle and Roman speakers, Cicero and Quintilian.

Public Speaking is not a new phenomenon. In fact, in today's global marketplace, it is the number one skill that employers seek in employees. Also, it is the number one phobia that most people have. Studies have suggested that people would rather die than speak publicly.

Here at PCCC, we are going to help you overcome your FEAR and develop speaking, presenting and listening skills that will empower, equip and enable you to become an effective speaker - publicly, professionally and personally!

Your individual instructors will provide you with a detailed syllabus that will further expand upon the public speaking website, textbook, assignments, presentations, papers and exams that you will be expected to engage in and complete.

Feel free to purchase the textbook at the PCCC Bookstore or as an E-book at: 

Make it a great semester and remember that “All the great speakers were bad speakers at first." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome again!

Professor Caffie J. Risher, Assistant Professor & Public Speaking Course Coordinator
