“A speech without a specific purpose is like a journey without a destination.” -Ralph Smedley
Public Speaking Course Overview
In this class students will learn how to write and present a successful speech. The course includes: watching effective speeches from some of today’s best presenters and analyzing their strengths and weaknesses, learning how to get from a speech topic to a well-written speech, and pointers on how to deliver any speech effectively. Based on the programs used by Toastmasters International, a widely recognized community organization, this speech class will help any student work through the fear of public speaking and become a confident communicator. Several different types of speeches will be explored: Informative, Story Telling, Persuasive, Impromptu and more.
Students will practice on their own, and then post the results on YouTube. They may choose to keep these videos private — family and friends only. But the experience of preparing a speech that is suitable for YouTube is an important learning technique.
