Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(328)
Learners will create an outline for a speech that has (1) an introduction that engages the audience, (2) strong supporting points, and (3) a meaningful conclusion. Outlining skills can be used for presentations or reports on any subject.

Class experience

US Grade 6 - 9
Beginner - Intermediate Level
Good speech organization is essential for anyone who wants to deliver a meaningful speech.  Many students are nervous to speak in front of others because they do not feel equipped with skills to speak with confidence.  A good outline is a confidence-builder.  It is a speaking road map. 

Students will learn how to organize their ideas for a speech in an orderly manner, including the (1) opening with an attention-getter or "hook" to capture the audience's interest, (2) the body with strong supporting points, and (3) the conclusion with a call-to-action.  A call-to-action explains how listeners can use the information or what they can do with the information you shared in your speech.

The outline template of this class can be used by students to prepare reports and presentations across the curriculum.
My name is Dr. Julie Connor and I am a confidence builder.  I help students discover their unique talents and speak in front of others with confidence. I am a TED speaker, school assembly speaker, and award-winning Toastmaster.  I help students develop writing skills to organize information, craft a quality speech, and deliver a strong presentation. Students also learn how nonverbal communication such as eye contact, voice, and body language can strengthen (or weaken) a terrific speech.  I have prepared students to compete in local and national speech competitions as a coach and critiqued presentations as a speech contest judge.  

My doctoral degree is in education. I am certified to teach elementary education (K-8) as well as secondary communication arts, speech and theater, English, and science education. I have more than 30 years of teaching experience in traditional and online classrooms.  I empower student teachers and seasoned educators with the same creative and interactive strategies I use with students. 

As a school assembly speaker and mental health advocate.  I help students throughout the country talk about tough topics. 
I equip teens with skills to communicate and resolve conflicts. I empower them with skills to create SMART personal goals that prepare them for success.
