I don't think that it is the public speaking that the reason they are required. It is more that you can express in words what you are thinking/writing.

I hated my speech classes in high school and college, but they did help me. I know I can stand up and talk to a group of people now without worrying about it.

Do you have to read a kids book in class? One of our speeches was reading a kids book. I read Green Eggs and Ham.
-----------------------------------

It sucks for you guys who have to load papers up to turnitin.com. I have never heard of it before. I am glad I did not have to go through that in college. I have a history degree and it seemed like I was writing papers every week for my classes. Plagiarism sucks.

No kids books. And this class is about every aspect of how you speak, whether you read fast/slow, whether you stutter. The professor puts marks for all of that.

As for turnitin, it sucks big time. I just hate the feeling wondering if it's gonna find something you didn't intend to put. I've been told that you can expect up to 20% plagiarism and be okay, but I'd like to stay at 0%.

Sounds like your public speaking teach sucks balls. Mine was really laid back.

Does it look for exact phrase matching? or does it look for similar wording/writing?

0% is a good goal. I would be shooting for that too. Do you have the ability to argue your case if the website comes back saying you plagiarized?

You arent the only one brother...I'm resorting to prostitution!

My Vent: I got to get my mail, plows broke my mailbox. I fix it and drive to the post office to get my mail. The *******s tell me I cant get my mail because my mailbox is broken, so I tell them it has been fixed and I just missed the mail carrier so I came to get my mail from the post office. They say its against regulations for me to pick up my mail at the post office. So I was already unhappy about standing in knee high snow fixing the mailbox and then they tell me I cant get my mail at the post office. I kinda freaked out a bit especially when I see my mail carrier walking in with my mail. So fuck them, they will get every heavy package I get now

Nice, that's showing them. I had the same when I missed my carrier with a package of mine. So went to the post office and I had to show two identifications, street address and so on and so on. I was like just give me my fucking package. Stupid people in this world I tell you.

The teacher herself has a laid back attitude, and she could be worse, but she nitpicks the small stuff.

I think it looks for similar phrasing.

You better damn believe I'd be arguing my case if it did. But they say to expect it since turnitin can't recognize quotes. WTF is that? I just think it's dumb because if you are accused of plagiarizing, you have to take a $40 Academic Integrity course on why you should be honest.

im not sure if this is against the threads rules but its something that needs to be said.

I absolutely hate how members on here bash on eachother daily. And They know who im talking about. Its isnt just once in a while, its every time I come on here they are bitching at eachother. I cant stand it. Take It to a private chat. NOT ON THE FORUMS. By hijacking another members forums you look like a damn child. You can at least act your age on here. Be civil for goodness sakes. If you dont like what someone else does to their truck WHO CARES! NOT ME! they bought the damn thing they can do whatever they want. If they want a cold intake let them get it! if they want lambo doors let them get it. If they want some giant ass stacks. let them get it. If you cant handle that Take it somewhere else. Go yell at someone who will actually listen, because im tired of seeing it on the forums. Your "infinite knowledge" doesnt impress me one bit. Im not naming any names so if you are offended. That only means you are probably one of the people im talking about. So if you cannot handle the responsibility of being on the internet then its probably time to stop being a keyboard warrior. and go find a new hobby to pass the time. I never thought that it would come to this point. Im 18 years old and granted I can be immature, but ive never insulted a fellow member here. Anyone can back me on that. So please ladies and gentlemen. Lets try and be a little more humble and a little more understanding.
