How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
Starting in Kindergarten, children are expected to start speaking in front of their classes. It may only be something simple, but for a child it can still be a very nerve wracking process! This class will give them tips on how to do that successfully. We will discuss good ways to stand up in front of the class and give a small speech. The tips given will be for a younger crowd, and will be age appropriate. We will not discuss memorization- a younger child cannot be expected to memorize...
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 enrollmentStudent will need: Pencil Crayons/Colored Pencils Journal Paper that has been provided or a plain piece of paper will do.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
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.
35 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.
