I really liked how Professor Goodman taught this course. She’s very understanding. I have generalized anxiety disorder however because of how she approached the class I didn’t struggle with anxiety or panic before either of the first two speeches. I really appreciate how she made the class environment very open and a safe space for those who may suffer from anxiety or nervousness when they give speeches.
It was a good course. Professor Goodman constantly kept the class engaged and had us participate in on the spot group projects in order to increase participation. The feedback was awesome, and her communication with students was good as well - I especially love her constant use of the remind app. I will definitely recommend her class to other students.
I am not much of a speaker, but this course definitely made me confident in public speaking as well as increase my confidence. Also, this course helped me become an active listener, as I usually dose off when others speak to me.
Professor Goodman is outstanding! She takes the time to make sure students understand the material. She also gives multiple opportunities for improvement. She is very informed and makes the lessons relatable and interesting.
Professor Goodman after our talk reminded me to not be afraid to use my voice and to confront the things which have had the power to limit my voice.
