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 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 famous and not-so-famous public speakers and critique what is successful and unsuccessful in their deliveries. The class concludes with students creating a TV news broadcast in which they serve as anchors.
