• Forget clowns and bugs, the number one fear of Americans is speaking in front of a crowd!

    Whether you are a reluctant speaker, have some skills, or never tried giving a speech, you will learn invaluable techniques for public speech in this pre-academy. You will make speeches and listen to those of your classmates about high interest topics of your choice. Use um, like, so, or other filler words? You will gain useful techniques to raise your awareness, a step toward ending that habit.

    Students will have time in class to prepare and present at least 3 speeches: informational, impromptu, and demonstration.

    Public speaking is offered in quarter 3 and again in quarter 4.  Overcome your fears and come join us!
