Public Speaking

The COM 110 course is an introductory foundational course for public speaking skills at NC State University. It is the first course that many students take in communication. In this context, the vMLK project can be used to give beginner-level students experience with a historic speech and introduce them to the concept of being in dialogue with a text through the re-envisioning and re-enactment of a speech. Dr. Elizabeth Nelson developed this set of pedagogical tools, which the vMLK team have adapted.
