Public Speaking and the Art of Narration for Grades 2-5 (1:00)

Course:  Public Speaking and the Art of Narration for Grades 2nd-5th

Instructor:  Shelley Campbell


Price: $150  

Curriculum:  Developed by the instructor

Course Description: This course is all about having students practice the invaluable life skills of public speaking and narrating.  Each week, students will stand in front of the class and respond to an open-ended prompt that they receive in advance.  Through the learning of some helpful hints (diaphragmatic breathing, noticing what our bodies are doing, eye contact, enthusiasm) and repetitive practice, students will grow in composure and confidence in their own ability to speak publicly. Whether your child tends toward shyness or is exhilarated by the idea of being in front of a crowd, all personalities are welcome and able to thrive! For the narration portion of the class, students will listen to a story read aloud.  Working in pairs or small groups, students will take turns retelling the story in their own words.  By doing so, students will be learning to listen attentively, sequence logically and highlight relevant details.  Students will improve their overall oral articulation. Learning to narrate well is also a powerful precursor to strong writing! This course is taught by Shelley Campbell. She has a degree in education and has been homeschooling her four kids (ages 11, 9, 7, and 4) for 8 wonderful years!  (26 Weeks)
