Who is it for? - Students who are looking to improve or practice their public speaking skills, both for speech assignments and every day interactions.
Why do we offer it? - We want to give students lessons focused entirely on public speaking, give them tools that they can take to their classes at school, and convey the importance of these skills in their lives as they grow into young adults.
How is it taught? - Students will be assigned several tasks, exercises and assignments all online. Speeches will be rehearsed and performed over Zoom; homework tasks will be assigned on Google Classroom.
