About This Class
Imagine speaking in front of your class room or even an auditorium full of classmates and being perfectly comfortable and confident. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you can speak confidently anytime to students as well as adults on the topic of your choice?
This course will teach you the following:
- How to present with complete confidence
- How to avoid the most common blunders that hurt other high school speakers
- How to rehearse your important presentations using video
- How to make students and teachers find your presentations more memorable and engaging
This course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.
The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.
How long this course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future presentations in your life.
You can begin improving your presentation skills right now. You may have an opportunity to speak out as soon as tomorrow, so why waste another day worried that your presentation skills are not up to high standards. Enroll in this course today.
