Class Experience

By the end of the class, students will have the knowledge and experience of speaking in front of a group. 
I have been actively public speaking since the age of 12. I was in a youth group that required public speaking of some form every time we met. Then in college, public speaking was a heavy part of my degree- Communications. 
There is no homework. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
Student will need: Pencil Crayons/Colored Pencils if they would like to draw a picture based on their sentences Journal Paper that has been provided
During the speech given at the end of class, an informal assessment and comments will be given to help the student with their speech giving skills. 
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Topics we may use for public speaking practice are our favorites (animals, colors, hobbies, etc), summer plans, vacations we've taken, or family stories. 

Each student will get a chance to speak in a round robin fashion in order to practice the skills learned in class.
