Public Speaking & Presentation
In the computer and phone age, our communication skills are not developing. This class, geared for children, will give the basics of how to speak to both adults and other children in a group and one on one format. Each student will write a short presentation on fun topics as well as learn to convey informational presentations to an audience.
The following skills will be explored in depth:
- Overcome fear of talking to groups and "owning" your words with the correct attitude
- Learn how to quickly prepare a thirty second speech on anything
- Understand how to have a conversation with an adult and to speak with confidence
- Explore the importance of proper volume, grammar, vocabulary, posture and eye contact
All in an age appropriate format!
