Speech Writing & Public Speaking Camp
55 minutes per class
4x per week over 1 week
$100 per student
4-12 Students Per Camp
In this week long camp, learners will get to practice public speaking skills in several different ways.
Day 1: We will break down different types of speeches (informative, demonstrative, persuasive, etc) and how to identify them. Then we will explore how a speech should be formatted and keys to making it interesting to your audience. Homework: Learners will pick a topic for their speech and begin researching.
Day 2: We will discuss what it means to be "conversational" in writing. We will also dive into what makes a good speaker, and practice tips on pacing, posture, volume and much more. Homework: Learners will start writing their speech.
Day 3: We will put our new skills in use with impromptu speeches (curating and delivering a speech without time to prepare) and will also introduce beginner debate skills.
Day 4: Learners will present their prepared speech to the class!
Being comfortable speaking in public is an invaluable asset for any future career. My hope is that by giving learners practice in a small group environment at a young age, they will gain the confidence and beginning skills that they can use all throughout life!
