This class taught me to harness my known knowledge of public speaking and combine it with new information to become a better student. This course showed me how to capture an audience’s attention, properly address a call to action, and adjust to my audience’s needs. I spoke about many topics from an informative speech on how to ski to giving a persuasive speech about Golden Retrievers! I learned a lot about myself from this class and conquered the “fear” of public speaking.
My Environmental Science Class challenged me in ways I had never been challenged before. I have never taken a class similar to this; it was broken up into one class with two separate labs for those in honors and the other section for those not enrolled in honors. I was able to learn about the Earth’s environmental services while also working in groups like I have never had to do before. Although tough, it has definitely prepared me for future endeavors.
