Although you may not take speech seriously, Mr. Kennedy sure will. He will religiously follow the rubrics when grading your speeches and makes it mandatory for all of his students to visit the speaker's lab. If you have difficulty speaking he will recognize that, but make sure you are refined …more regardless. He expects you to stay in class full time. less

COMM-R 110 is a fast pace class. He is tough grader and he expect the students to be a pro when communicating on the stage.

I had this professor for COMM-R110. Keep in mind this is a 100 level class... Kennedy will teach like you are in a 300 level class. Very tough grader. If you miss one speech or one test then you will fail, and do not think about skipping class or even being late for that matter. Very nice guy, …more however, his feedback of speeches is VERY harsh. less

Prepare to tailor your speeches to please the professor, rather than your class. If your entention is to get an A+, choose a different teacher. This class was my lowest grade, at an A-. This class required more effort than any two of my other classes put together. Caring teacher, but doesn't care …more if he hurts your gpa. less

Mr. Kennedy is a very harsh grader. He will not mince words while giving you verbal feedback. He does not grade all speeches the same and has unrealistic expectations. This class is not easy and Mr. Kennedy is hard headed.

This is the worst professor I have ever had. I put a lot of work into my classes, but it doesn't matter how much work you put into this class. It's never good enough for him. When he goes through the rubric, he automatically selects "satisfactory" and will never tell you why it wasn't …more "exemplary". If your GPA matters to you, don't take his class. less
