In high school, college, and beyond, you will be called upon to speak confidently and effectively to a group of listeners. This course will prepare you to do so. We will look at and try our hands on informational, persuasive, and entertaining speeches. We will have opportunities to write our own speeches for a variety of audiences and purposes, as well as make speeches on an impromptu basis. Finally, we will gain practice in the art of effective delivery.
This course meets once a week all year long, and is graded Pass/Fail
