Public Speaking Summer Flex Class: Finding Your Voice!

Phillip Wenturine, MFA
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(38)
In this one month course, students will take risks and grow their confidence and poise in public speaking and speech making.

Class experience

Students will improve not only in their written speeches, but also by strengthening their confidence, poise, and voice as a public speaker. Exposure to a variety of videos will also allow students to learn from other incredible public speakers while also engaging in critical thinking skills along the way.
I have been an English and writing teacher in the USA, China, Portugal, and Vietnam over the last eight years. In my AP English classes, part of our curriculum is analyzing speeches and creating our own. I have really enjoyed helping my own students master the art of public speaking, both working on their oral performance skills as well as building their confidence when speaking, both mentally and physically. My expertise as a writing instructor allows me to help students get what they want to say on paper before ultimately helping students give the words a powerful voice. The flexible schedule modal for this course is perfect as it allows students the privacy to practice speech writing, make mistakes in the comfort of their own home, and record it as many times as needed to get it perfect. Then, they are still getting collaborative feedback by following the peer-critique structure as a class when we watch and give feedback on each student's speech each week. I look forward to helping your child find their voice! 
Homework Offered
Each week, after watching the weekly video, students will be expected to submit a written speech as well as a video recording of their challenge. In turn, students will also take time to give constructive feedback to fellow peers as well as taking my constructive criticism into account for the upcoming week's challenge. ~Weekly Format~ Monday: View weekly video challenge and lecture Tuesday: Read links, watch video clips, and practice writing/recording your speech Wednesday: Submit written speech, upload video recording, and complete reflection Thursday: Complete feedback poll and quizzes Friday: Finish student critiques and respond to discussion questions
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Learners are asses by a written report from myself as well as feedback in the discussion board from their peers during our workshops.
Grades Offered
Students merely need access to a computer that has Microsoft Word and a webcam to complete this course (along with a passion to find their voice!)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
