Class Experience

Students will improve their knowledge of history by learning about the lives of children who changed the world. Students will also learn and practice practical skills to help them develop confidence when speaking across a range of social and professional settings, for example, online learning environments, speech and debate teams, speaking up in class, and developing confidence with everyday communication. Key learning objectives for this class:

Understanding presentation style - How can we engage with the audience in the way they need and deliver our message in an impactful way?
Emotional expression - How can we speak authentically and communicate our emotions?
Pace, Tone, and Volume - How can we use pace, tone, and volume to maximize the impact of our communication?
Focussed messaging - What do I want to say and how can I stick to my message? How can I speak with focus and clarity?
Act and speak ethically - Understanding the power and influence of speech.
Exhibit confidence and poise - Confidence and poise are key skills for public speaking? How can we develop and practice these skills?
Lead a discussion - Students will be invited to think about how to engage an audience during a discussion.
Connect with your audience - How can we use eye contact, posture, and non - verbal communication to connect with our audience?
Gesture - How can we use gestures when we speak to give meaning to our message?
Research - What's my topic? What message are you trying to convey? What's the most effective way to do this? 

As an educator with over twenty years of teaching experience and, a Master's level student of Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I can confidently and sensitively guide children to listen and respond to difficult narratives. 
No homework will be assigned for this class.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be given formative feedback on an ongoing basis throughout the class. At the end of the course, each learner will receive some individualized written feedback. 
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This course will explore the lives of children who may have survived difficult circumstances, for example, war, oppression, genocide, and extreme poverty. I will let you know in advance of each session of any specific content that might be sensitive or triggering and work with you to discuss strategies and interventions to support your child when exploring the topic.
