Course Description:

In this confidence-building course, students will learn fundamental techniques for prepared and impromptu public speaking. Students will learn how to write and structure a speech as well as how to deliver it in a confident, clear, and engaging way.

Public speaking is a very valuable job skill which employers find in short supply. While many colleges require public speaking courses, high school students often lack an opportunity to develop their skills. This course focuses on developing technique through continual practice. While the class will sample a few different forms of public speaking, the primary aim is to give students an introduction to fundamentals that can apply to any setting. Students will practice short-form speeches each lesson while building towards a long-form speech to be delivered at the end of the course.
