Time:  5:00-6:30pm

Fee:     $150 (6 Wks)
Location: Brick Building, 97 School Street
Instructor: Right Brain Curriculum

Famously, Americans’ number one fear is public speaking while death only ranks number two. If that’s so, this profound fear probably starts at an early age. In our Public Speaking class, we take the fear out of speaking before an audience by getting kids talking in front of a supportive group about things in which they are interested. They write speeches on subjects of their choice and practice delivering them to the assembled students. As the kids practice in this low-pressure environment, they learn skills like standing up tall, using a loud voice and making eye contact. We also watch speeches of public figures and critique what is successful and unsuccessful in their speeches and hold fun and engaging debates in which students are asked to take a position on given issues such as “Should school have homework?” and “What time should kids go to bed?” If the class is successful, our students won’t list public speaking as their #1 fear when they grow up.
