2019 PLE Public Speaking Course with Dr. Kristin

Hi! I'm Kristin Heath. I have a doctorate in Education and a Masters degree in Communication.

As a young kid I was very shy. I knew I had to do something to overcome my introversion. It paralyzed me and limited my opportunities on a daily basis. I forced myself to join the High School Speech and Debate team. The structure made it so I could learn critical thinking skills and look at an issue from multiple sides. I still get frustrated to this day when people don’t have several contentions and points of data to back up their arguments. :) Most of all, it really helped me to find my voice and give my opinion. 

Since High School and College I have taught college classes and created curriculum for a large corporation. I currently have four young children who I stay home with and I teach online classes to Chinese children on the side. 

I love to go on sunny adventures filled with beaches and water like snorkeling, rafting and kayaking. I'm a huge audiobook fan. It is amazing being able to listen to a book at double speed while doing the dishes. I drink too much soda and I love cookies but I'm always trying to do better.

Beginning Public Speaking - Part One

Course Overview:

Beginning Public Speaking is a course where students will develop strong speech presentation skills in a fun and supportive environment. Four main speech types (informative, persuasive, improvised and theatrical) will be utilized over the ten week session and evaluated in the following four areas; ideas/content, organization, language and delivery.

In this course we aim to …

  • Decrease anxiety about public presentations.

  • Reinforce the ability to write a clear thesis.

  • Enhance the ability to support a thesis with clear evidence.

  • Increase critical thinking skills.

Expectations and Goals

Students are expected to prepare for class and attend on time every week. They are expected to present a minimum of four speeches during the course. They are expected to evaluate their peers. They are expected to succeed and they are expected to fail. When they succeed we will celebrate. When they fail they will learn from the experience and appreciate the opportunity for growth. All students are expected to support one another’s growth by cheering each other on and providing constructive feedback.
