I am a certified teacher with 26 years of experience in Canadian classrooms. I specialize in Middle Years English and have taught and led hundreds if not thousands of lessons/activities involving speaking in small groups, large groups, concerts, plays, readers theatre, debates, assemblies, and projects. My students have won individual awards at speech festivals and I regularly entered my classes in the choral speaking division of the festival where we would perform poems and readings, three times achieving the top score. Best of all we had so much fun together, and it was pure joy for me to see how proud the kids were of themselves!
There is no need for learners to prepare speeches ahead of time for this class. We will brainstorm points for the speeches together and then learners will use these points to give their mini-speeches during our meetings.
No formal assessment or grade will be given, but during the class, attention will be given to how much knowledge students already know about public speaking and teaching will be adjusted accordingly.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Note: Learners will need to have their videos turned on for our classes, especially when it is their turn to speak, and learners’ whole face should be visible(not just a forehead). I am happy to give cheerful reminders to children during the class if needed and appreciate parental support on this! Thank you!
