Public Speaking


This speech course will help students learn how to organize their thoughts and speak clearly in both informal and formal presentations. While some of the speeches are delivered in an impromptu or casual style, most are carefully researched and prepared. Students will have experience giving many different types of speeches to their classmates. The teacher will make careful critiques of the speeches and will hold conferences with students regarding the speeches performed during the semester. As a result of taking Public Speaking, students improve their articulation, poise, eye contact, gestures, and organization of ideas.
