Speech and Creative Writing
These classes will each be a semester class.
Students will have the opportunity to develop the art of public speaking. We will study and implement the traits of successful communication- verbal and non-verbal. The course begins with the skill of introductions and moves through planning, researching, composing, and delivering a variety of speeches. We will analyze mass media, perform scenes from plays, debate, and read dramatically. Students will perform weekly.
Find your voice! Through exploring and imitating different genres of writing, we will improve our own writing and composition skills. Students will write and edit every class. We will read and evaluate fiction, poetry, and non-fiction pieces to develop our own creative expressions. The students will create a portfolio and publish their best pieces for classmates.
