I am a native English speaker, and I have degrees, post-graduate, and professional qualifications in the following: - Law - Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, Admission as a Lawyer; - TESOL - I have completed 8 out of 8 units towards the 150-hour qualification. When I receive my official professional certificate from Arizona State University I will update this here, it is expected to take up to 8 weeks to arrive; - Criminology; - I.T. Security; - Applied Linguistics; - Investigative Services; - Security, Terrorism and Counterterrorism; - Nursing Science. I have also completed the following short courses which are relevant to the classes I teach here: - How Forensic Science should speak to the Court; - Introduction to Key Constitutional Concepts and Supreme Court Cases (USA); - An Introduction to American Law (USA); - English Common Law: Structure and Principles (UK); - Economic Growth and Distributive Justice; - Water Supply and Sanitation Policy in Developing Countries; - Sustainable Agricultural Land Management; - Reason and Persuasion: Thinking Through Three Dialogues By Plato; - Technology and Ethics; - ADHD: Everyday Strategies for Elementary Students; - The Clinical Psychology of Children and Young People; - Everyday Parenting: The ABCs of Child Rearing; - A Brief History of Humankind; - Dino 101: Dinosaur Paleobiology; - Nutrition, Health, and Lifestyle: Issues and Insights; - Epidemics, Pandemics and Outbreaks (I took this course well before COVID-19); - COVID Vaccine Ambassador Training: How to Talk to Parents. I have also been a guest correspondent for the Asia-Pacific region on two different radio programs via KDVS, the radio station at the University of California - Davis campus. I have reported and discussed science and politics over the UC Davis airwaves, and these live radio programs are also available as podcasts. I have also co-hosted a journalism podcast for several years. As a lawyer, the deciding factor of a case presented to the Court may not be the evidence, or at least, not just the evidence; it may be how well you speak, and how confident you appear. This course will teach you how to become a better public speaker if you practice the skills that you learn here in your daily life.
- Learners will need to work on their speeches in between classes, keeping in mind the skills that they have learned in each class and implementing them. - There will be 7 classes where they are being taught these skills, and feedback will be given asynchronously via the classroom or messages with their teacher as they draft their speeches of approximately 1 minute each in between live classes. - Learners will present their 1-minute speeches to the class in the 8th live class of this course.
Handouts: - Speech Evaluation Form (for peer evaluation)
- Learners will present their 1-minute speeches to the class in the 8th live class of this course (see "homework" for details) for peer review.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
- I will screen share Google Slides during our lives classes. - I will post applicable YouTube videos in our classroom in between live classes. - Learners do not need to access the internet outside of Outschool for our classes.
