How to Use This Course
Public speaking is presented for your student in a video format, along with informative websites and activities that include writing and performing. The topics your student will cover include impromptu speaking, expository speech, informative and current events speeches, interpretative speech, and how to write a memorable speech. It is best to work through these lessons in sequential order as they build on each other to assist the student in learning the skills needed to do well in public speaking and become more confident. After completing all requirements of this five-month course, it will earn the student 0.5 high school credit.
This five-month class will study both speech and forensics. We’ll learn about impromptu speaking, expository speech, informative and current event speeches, interpretative speech, and how to write a memorable speech. My goal is to help you grow as a researcher, performer, and speaker through this class through learning valuable skills, real-life experience, and exercises to build your confidence.
