MOUTH TO MINDS  - Section Code: PEDW9100
Public speaking is a process of using the mouth to reach the minds of the audience. Speaking in public will increase students’ self-confidence, improve personal relationships, and gain great opportunities in careers. This course helps educators use the Internet resources to help students research, develop, and present speeches. Educators can find current research and instructional strategies to help develop an effective public speaking program. You will also explore other Internet tools including communications systems, online videos, information sharing programs, photo and graphic production, online bibliography services, wikis, webquests and many other resources. You will then synthesize these resources to design and develop a lesson plan, or other type of project, that you can use with your students.

Interpersonal communication can be described as the process of sending and receiving information between two or more people – using all the techniques. Use the Internet to help your students understand concepts, principles and skills of interpersonal communication. You will also explore other Internet tools including communications systems, online videos, information sharing programs, photo and graphic production, online bibliography services, wikis, webquests and many other resources.
