INTRO PUBLIC SPEAK
4****
Pros: easy lecture-wise, usually lets you leave early...also pretty fair on grading speeches. im not a great public speaker but i didnt do worse than a B on any of my speeches but still made an A- in the class which i was pretty happy with
Cons: i mean...public speaking is not too fun in the first place, but if you have to take it, Len is a pretty cool guy to do it with :)
5 speeches: introduction, special occassion, exposition, persuasive, and argumentative ranging from 1-7 minutes in length

INTERPERSONAL COMM
5*****
Pros: He's hilarious and makes class go by quickly. His style is engaging and he allows for a lot of input from the students.
Cons: There are a lot of pop quizzes. He lets you use your notes for most of them, but they're more difficult than necessary.
The tests and quizzes are largely vocabulary-based, so just study the terms and be able to provide unique examples and you'll be fine. I wish Neighbors taught more courses; I'd definitely take him again.

INTRO PUBLIC SPEAK
5*****
Pros: He is really laid back and tried to get the class to talk.



He doesn't make you turn in a rough draft for your speech so you are free to make changes as you are giving your speech.



He has specific note days and those notes are pretty much what the final and midterm comes from. Those are the only exams.
Cons: NONE :)
Take him if he is an option!
