Overview: This public speaking course is designed to help students build confidence while also learning presentation strategies. Because most students feel fear or anxiety when they present, there will be many speeches assigned in the semester for opportunities to practice and build confidence.
Technology: We do a lot of work on computers and laptops because a lot of work will be done through Google Classroom. Digital citizenship will be taught and enforced throughout the semester.
Assignments: Students will be graded on three main areas: journals, classwork, and speeches. There will be little to no homework assigned. Instead, there will be classwork so the teacher and peers can assist in the process. Homework is for students that do not finish their work in class.
Final: The final is the Persuasive Speech. The students actually start their final the day before finals week starts to ensure there is time for every student to present their persuasive speech.
