Student Feedback

“Ms. Stein is one of the better teachers that I have come across in my University experience. Her ability to relate and communicate to her students is incredible. She created a comfortable environment where everyone felt welcome and free to be themselves.”

“The course was very well planned out. I really enjoyed this class, and it was definitely my most looked forward to class of the week. Krysten has been the best teacher that I
have interacted with so far! She is always so fun and up beat it makes me want to come to class! Also the material in the book is very plainly put and easy to understand. I
have learned a TON about writing outlines and giving speeches that I never knew before taking this course.”

“Krysten is a great teacher. She came to class everyday with a smile and was enthusiastic about EVEYRTHING! Having such an enthusiastic teacher made me enthusiastic
about the course. Public speaking is such a big fear of so many people and to have a teacher actually get the class about speaking is amazing! I loved this class and
professor. I especially enjoyed how she showed a lot of youtube videos to help us see what our speeches should be like.”

“I really benefited from the instructor’s enthusiasm and willingness to go over things a million times if it meant it would help us understand something better. The instructor was very patient, understanding, thorough, and effective in teaching.”

“Krysten is AMAZING! She is honestly a fantastic teacher. I wish that I could have her for my persuasive speaking class. I really appreciate her for making the environment in the classroom comfortable, because I believe it’s pretty apparent that public speaking isn’t exactly a comfortable thing to do. Although in this class I have never had such
an easy and comfortable time giving speeches. She also puts A LOT of feedback on our outlines which I definitely appreciate. I loved this class!

“The instructor was extremely kind and helpful through all of the assignments and all of the classes. She kept it professional but related to all of us at the same time and
made the class fun and interesting. I could tell she actually cared about her students succeeding.”

“Great teacher! She was not easy, but she had a connection with students that made them want to come to class and learn. I would recommend her for teaching the public
speaking course any day. She made us as students relax to the pressure of a speech class which seems to be one of the biggest fears of most college students.”

“The video examples and outline templates were relatively helpful for me to work on the speeches. I also like how we discuss as a class about the next required speech, and what needs improvement for better performance next time.”

“The teacher was effective in communication with students and was attentive to their needs (fast and responsive emails). Class discussions were fun and the atmosphere of the classroom was enough to brighten my day.”

“This course did an excellent job of approaching the topic of Popular Culture and Mediated Texts. Allowing students to first learn about critique perspectives from the
textbook, then providing students with additional, more topical texts. Additionally, the assignments were focused on students’ own, personal perspectives, which I think was a
great way to introduce and analyze this topic.”

“I liked the layout and the flexibility of this course. I especially liked the feedback from Professor Stein in her emails with thorough explanations and advice for making
assignments and or questions understandable.”

“Ms. Stein was incredibly helpful. She offered great feedback on projects and was open to answer any questions. It was clear what she expected out of students throughout
the course and was more than fair when grading assignments. I will absolutely recommend this course and instructor to my classmates as I learned way more than I
expected too.”

“Rubrics were well laid out and made the expectations of the students very clear. The examples as well were nice to see as well. Teacher also provided excellent reading
sources both from the textbook as well as additional sources. Teacher gave enough time on all assignments so students didn’t feel rushed to complete assignments, and
there were no overlap between assignments.”

“One thing I enjoyed about this class was the creativity involved in the assignments. As a participant, I needed to think critically but also needed to use critical thinking skills
to complete the coursework.”

“I loved this course and I love this professor! I have had her before for an online class and since that experience was so great, I chose to take this course.”

“I found it to be extremely beneficial the energy that the professor brought to the class each and every morning. Her passion and energy in the classroom encouraged me to actively participate in the class. I wasn’t too enthused about taking this course in the beginning, but professor Stein quickly changed that and this became one of my favorite courses.”

“I really liked the presentation slides, especially because they would outline the important components that needed to be included in our speeches and in general, important communication concepts. The teacher was really sweet and would be willing to meet with you if you needed help with your speech or needed clarification. She gave constructive feedback and always pushed us to do our best.”

“Loved the presentations/lectures. She was very good at keeping people engaged with the course content and always stopped to make sure everybody understood the material. It was also always very helpful that she made it clear what was expected of us, which helped with
doing assignments. She also took a lot of time to help explain the speech assignments individually to those who needed it.”

“She is a great person and a great teacher. She offers support and explanations for all the content in the course. Not only that, but she was very direct with the grades we received which helped us improve as speakers and students.”
