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. The first day of class will be spent talking about how to deliver a good speech. I will give the student guidelines on how to effectively give a speech in front of a group. We will then talk a little about the speech itself. How do you write a...
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.
Homework will be given at the end of the first class. The homework will be to write a short speech on a simple topic such as a favorite vacation, a funny family story, or their favorite gift they have received. The speech should only be a paragraph or two.
Student will need: Paper Pencil
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
During the speech given in the second class, an informal assessment and comments will be given to help the student with their speech giving skills.
1 hour 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.
