Public Speaking (K-5)

Give your students the gift of confidence by incorporating public speaking skills into your classroom! In this class you will learn to incorporate ELA Common Core standards into lesson plans based on your class level. Your students will love how you bring public speaking into your other subjects, such as history, science, and literature! Rehearse and perform short speeches, tell stories in your own words, and pay homage to an author by memorizing and presenting pieces for oral interpretation. Following the ELA standards, you and your students will create visuals to illustrate your presentations. Participants will be required to record themselves and upload the video onto the website. If participants don't own a device, they will need to make arrangements to borrow one. Videos taken from iPhones, iPads, or similar devices are sufficient.
