Prerequisites: Must be TSI complete </p><p>in reading or be concurrently enrolled in READ 0308 and eligibility to enroll in ENGL 0306. </p><p>Recommendation: The speech faculty strongly recommends that the student be eligible to enroll </p><p>in ENGL 0308. F, Sp, Su (2310015312) </p><p>INSTRUCTORS: </p><p> Name: Mrs. Jeanine Tagg </p><p> Office Number: CA 106 </p><p> Office Phone: 903-983-8176 </p><p> E-Mail: jtagg@kilgore.edu </p><p>This contact information is for emergency situations only: all on-line communications must be </p><p>within the Moodle class email. </p><p>COURSE RATIONALE: This course prepares the student for the increasing need for public speaking skills required in </p><p>modern society and business. This preparation includes analysis of the subject of the speech, the </p><p>occasion, the audience, and the most effective method of communication. The course also </p><p>satisfies the speech component in the Communications section of the Kilgore College Core </p><p>Curriculum and the speech requirement for the A.A., A.A.T. and A.S. degrees at Kilgore </p><p>College. </p><p>TEXTBOOK: </p><p>Public Speaking for College and Career, Hamilton Gregory (McGraw-Hill, New York, 2010). </p><p>In addition to the required textbook, the students are required to download the SPCH 1315 </p><p>Course Handbook, a detailed description of the course, its objectives and its requirements, </p><p>written by the Kilgore College Speech Faculty. This Course Handbook also provides the </p><p>student a ready record of his performance on each in-class presentation. </p><p>EVALUATION: Grading for SPCH 1315 is divided into four different units: </p><p> (1) the Assigned Written Work unit, valued at 25% of the semester grade; </p><p> (2) the Speaking Assignments unit, valued at 40%; </p><p> (3) the Final Examination Speech unit, valued at 20%; and </p><p> (4) the Written Final Examination unit, valued at 15%. </p><p>The SPCH 1315 Course Handbook includes a detailed description of each instructional unit. </p><p>mailto:jtagg@kilgore.edu</p></li><li><p>2 </p><p>CLASSROOM POLICIES: The classroom policies are explained in the SPCH 1315 Course Handbook which each student </p><p>is required to download. </p><p>In addition, students should read the Kilgore College attendance policy in the Kilgore College </p><p>Catalog and should be aware that an instructor may drop a student from the class as a result of </p><p>excessive absences (12.5% of the total hours of instruction in any term). The dates for </p><p>withdrawal and the related grades are also listed in the catalog. </p><p>Students should also read the Academic Honesty Statement in the Kilgore College Catalog to be </p><p>aware of potential penalties associated with academic dishonesty. </p><p>Each instructor reserves the right to make modifications in content and schedule as necessary to </p><p>promote the best education possible within the prevailing conditions affecting this course. </p><p>EXEMPLARY EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES: (found in the Faculty Handbook for each </p><p>Core Component) </p><p>The student must be able to: </p><p> 1) understand and demonstrate writing and speaking processes through invention, </p><p>organization, drafting, revision, editing, and presentation; </p><p> 2) understand the importance of specifying audience and purpose and to select </p><p>appropriate communication choices; </p><p>3) understand and appropriately apply modes of expression, i.e., descriptive, expositive, </p><p>narrative, scientific, and self-expression in written, visual, and oral expression </p><p>4) demonstrate speaking processes through organization, drafting, revision, editing and </p><p>presentation </p><p>5) understand and apply basic principles of critical thinking, problem solving, and </p><p>technical proficiency in the develop of exposition and argument; </p><p>6) develop the ability to research and write a documented paper and/or to give an oral </p><p>presentation. </p><p>STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES: </p><p>In learning to prepare speeches: A.

Each test covers four chapters and contains fifty questions. Tests must be </p></li><li><p>completed in an approved testing center, such as the Kilgore College Testing Center. Each Unit </p><p>Test will be available in the testing center for a four day period as stated on the course calendar on </p><p>this Web site. Summer testing schedules may vary according to Testing Center policies. Web </p><p>students may repeat each test once to earn a better grade, but a 24-hour waiting period is required </p><p>between tests. However, if a student does repeat a Unit Test, the second grade will be the recorded </p><p>grade for the test even if it is lower than the first grade. </p><p>For each chapter, McGraw-Hill, the textbooks publisher, offers a practice test on its interactive </p><p>web site. These tests are also available on the SPCH 1315 web site. Web students are strongly </p><p>encouraged to use these practice tests to review each chapter before taking the Unit Tests. </p><p>Students must have a passing average of 70 or above on the unit tests in order to proceed to </p><p>the Speaking Assignments Unit. </p><p>Each web student is required to turn in a typed outline of his/her speech according to the </p><p>semester schedule provided by the course instructor; failure to turn in the required outline at the </p><p>required time will result in the students losing his/her speaking space and receiving a grade of </p><p>0 for that speech. </p><p>For the web-based course, due dates for student speech outlines will be posted on this website </p><p>and/or emailed to course participants by the beginning of the semester. </p><p>Speaking Assignments (40%): Each student enrolled in Speech 1315 is expected to complete four speeches during the period of </p><p>time set aside for student speeches. Each speech is assigned a numeric grade ranging from "0" to </p><p>"100." At the end of the time allotted for student speeches, the student's "Speaking Assignments" </p><p>grade (40% of the semester grade) is determined by averaging the grades for his/her four </p><p>speeches. In the event that a student does not complete the four speeches within the allotted </p><p>speaking time, his/her average is determined by adding together the total score on the speeches </p><p>that he/she does complete and dividing that total by four. The Kilgore College speech faculty has </p><p>determined that this method is the best way to encourage each student to pursue constant </p><p>improvement in his/her speaking assignments. </p><p>Students must have a passing average of 70 or above on the Speaking Assignments Unit in </p><p>order to proceed to the Final Examination Speech. </p><p>When a student fails a speech, his/her failure is almost always due to one or more of the </p><p>following problems: (1) he/she is obviously unprepared to speak; (2) he/she fails to meet the </p><p>requirements of a specific assignment; (3) he/she plagiarizes material within the presentation, (4) </p><p>he/she fails to follow the required dress code for speakers; or (5) he/she reads a speech rather than </p><p>delivering it extemporaneously. Any one of these situations occurring in a student's speech </p><p>results in an automatic grade of "F" (50) for that speech. These grades of F are absolute </p><p>and non-negotiable. </p><p>In addition, each of the "Speaking Assignments" categories has a specific time requirement. Each </p><p>student must keep his/her presentations within these time requirements. A penalty of one point </p><p>per five seconds is deducted from the student's grade for all deviations from the required </p></li><li><p> 5 </p><p>time limits on each speech. A speech that is one minute or more too short or one minute or </p><p>more too long will automatically receive a grade of F. </p><p>For the web-based course, several weeks of the term are allotted for student speeches. The </p><p>student must complete his/her speeches according to the SPCH 1315 calendar published on this </p><p>website and/or emailed to the class participants by the instructor. In general, there is no set order </p><p>for the student speeches: the student is free to choose topics from the "Speaking Assignments" list </p><p>in any order he/she chooses. </p><p>Final Examination Speech (20%) </p><p>The Final Examination Speech is in addition to the four speeches made during the "Speaking </p><p>Assignments" section of the course and is given near the end of the course term. This speech must </p><p>be no shorter than seven minutes and no longer than twelve minutes in length. </p><p>As the single most important speech of the semester, the Final Exam Speech should be carefully </p><p>written and rehearsed, and it must be presented extemporaneously. Again, a final copy of the </p><p>students typed outline must be submitted according to the course schedule. Like the other </p><p>speeches, this speech is given a numeric grade ranging from "0" to "100." A penalty of one point </p><p>per five seconds is deducted from the student's grade for all deviations from the required time </p><p>limits for this speech. And, a speech that is one minute or more too short or one minute or </p><p>more too long automatically receives a grade of F. </p><p>All class policies certainly apply to the Final Examination Speeches. Specific guidelines and/or </p><p>requirements for the web-based Final Exam Speech will be posted on this website and/or emailed </p><p>to the class participants by the instructor prior to the speechs due date. </p><p>Written Final Examination (15%): This comprehensive test will be given during the period set aside for final exams on the Kilgore </p><p>College calendar. It will include the material from the textbook as well as any pertinent material </p><p>discussed during the semester. </p></li></ul>
