The importance of communication skills to students cannot be overstated. Effective communication skills will not just help our children participate in a crowded classroom, but will enable them to stand out in a crowd.
Our goals are to help our children:
Speak concisely and precisely, with confidence and clarity.
Develop and deliver informative speeches, and connect with audience.
Embrace disagreement and arguments of opposite views.
Develop critical thinking.
Develop teamwork & leadership skills.
We have developed our year long program based on Middle-School & High School Public Speaking & Debate concepts.
Students & Parent Coaches meet once every week for an hour to enrich students' presentation and communication skills with Public Speaking & Debate sessions. Industry leaders and guest speakers will provide real-world examples.
Typical class schedule for this program may include:
15 mins: Introducing Public Speaking & Debate topics
30 mins: Practicing Public Speaking & Debate
10 mins: Review
5 mins: Discuss next topic
