Single Semester Course
Effective Speaking is a practical and hands-on introduction to the techniques and styles of effective speaking. Over the course of the year students will prepare for and present both formal and informal speeches. Students will be graded on both written and spoken work, presented in the form of responses, speeches, outlines, activities, and presentations. The primary goal of this course is individual improvement. A student’s progress will be tracked throughout the semester in hopes that they will gain the confidence and experience to articulate in a classroom, assembly, or public gathering. Through the use of various tricks, techniques, and tools introduced, students will become more confident speaking in front of a crowd, no matter the size!
