About Eric Mishne, M.A.

Professor Mishne studied theatre at Cedarville from 2003-2008. While here, he competed on the forensics team, where he honed his public speaking skills, paving the way for his career as a public speaking educator. He has coached homeschool speech and debate with much competitive success, and remains active in the homeschool speech and debate community. His academic research revolves around public speaking norms and conventions in competitive settings, arguing that adherence to unspoken rules can decrease the pedagogical value of such activities. He has published several articles on public speaking and rhetoric, and is passionate about creating an educational environment where students can learn about themselves and the world in which they live.
