When an important occasion arises, will you be able to communicate effectively? An opportunity to witness, a job interview, an impromptu meeting...all require effective communication. How well are you prepared? This class will teach you how to express yourself and your thoughts and give you practice doing it. (As a side benefit, it fulfills many English/Communication/Elective credits for your high school diploma.)
Just what will you be required to do? I'm glad you asked!
Here's the list of required speeches. The first semester will focus on traditional speech forms:
the Introductory Speech,
the Demonstration Speech,
the impromptu Speech,
the Sales Speech,
the Campaign Speech,
the Informative Speech
and the Persuasive Speech.
Second semester will focus on other forms of verbal communication:
Oral Interpretation (of the Bible, Kiddie Lit, Prose and Poetry).
We will also study large group communication: Parliamentary Procedure and Large Group Discussion.
Students will be expected to complete all speeches, help others learn and grow and improve, and HAVE FUN!
