Students will learn to write organized thoughts and deliver thoughts in a public setting. Speeches will cover informational, persuasive, demonstrative, entertainment, and more. Students will also learn how to defend their arguments through class debates. Fun learning activities like creating commercials, Shakespearean roles, 20 questions, and writing a dialogue based on miscommunication, help re-enforce the lessons and teach the necessity of good communication skills.
Most students would do anything to get out of speaking in public, but it is a necessary life skill. The ability to organize thoughts into words will help students when seeking employment, standing up against injustice, and any time they need to communicate their thoughts to others.
Syllabus and grades will be posted via the school online gradebook, student will need to access this regularly.
