Introduction to Public Speaking with Highest Speak

grades 2-5

The “Speak Climbers” (or grades 2-5) introduction to public speaking is an incredibly fun, highly interactive, virtual public speaking class for our future Highest Speakers! In this unprecedented era, children need learning, interaction with instructors, fun, and socialization with other children their age! This limited-size class will ensure that students receive plenty of individual attention and feedback.

During this five-session class, we will engage in activities in persuasive speaking, informative speaking, entertainment speech, general speech, and storytelling. Please note that assignments may be given and should be completed. Participants will gain the most out of the class if they practice their learned skills outside of sessions.
