Students will begin the two weeks by playing fun games and learning tips that will reduce or eliminate communication apprehension (the fears associated with public speaking). Then they will learn about and practice impromptu debate as well as interpretation speaking, which helps students to focus on verbal and nonverbal delivery in playful and fun ways. The students will also learn the basics of debate by developing one issue as a group and by researching and preparing cases as a team. Roundtable discussions will prepare them, and then they will wrap up the class with a mini-debate and speech performance that parents and families can attend. This class allows students to try out different performance opportunities that The Harker School speech and debate program offers and is a great prep course for Introduction to Public Speaking and Argumentation elective. Even students who never want to compete will find this an invaluable learning opportunity and a chance to see public presentation (public speaking through speeches/ debates) in a fun light.
