I am currently in the final 9 credits of a Master's in Teaching at Oakland City University.  Upon graduation in Spring 2022, I will be entering the school system as a Middle School ELA teacher.

For more of my relationship to oral communication...
My personal journey with public speaking began in 4th grade, having to read a book report aloud to my classmates.  However, it was in 8th grade that my English teacher took me under her wing and helped me prepare for an actual speech contest.  As we poured over content, structure, visuals, and delivery methods, I entered the contest with confidence and took first place in my very first competition.  As the years followed I found that oral communication was everywhere.  Today I use the exact same skills learned back then when teaching a training class, here in classes for Outschool, and even in teaching classes at church.  Public speaking is everywhere!
Students will engage in in-class work where they will complete worksheets related to the teaching, but will then use these worksheets to direct them in researching, writing, and preparing for their final project of presenting a 5-7 minute speech for the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Following week 5, a written assessment will be provided to the parents describing the level of participation their student has given, as well as noting any concerns seen.

Following week 10, a second written assessment will be provided tot he parent that will additionally provide feedback on the final speech presented by their student, with both highlights and areas for improvement going forward.

Please note - Letter grades can be given when asked by the parent.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Content will remain safe for all students.  Any offense by teacher or fellow students will be handled quickly.
All worksheets will be provided by the teacher within the classroom link and be expected to be printed out for the student to use in class.
