At some point in our lives we will all have to give a presentation, whether it is a school project or a speech for an audience of 10 or 100. The purpose of this workshop is to teach children the "learnable" social skill of giving an engaging, informative, and interesting presentation. Students will learn the how to prepare for a presentation, the basics of delivery and execution, combatting stage fright, and much more. Students will give a short presentation at the end of class to practice in a real-life setting. 

Topics include:

  • using body language (eye contact, facial gestures, posture) to communicate
  • preparing for a presentation
  • removing junk words and speaking in a more formal tone
  • eliminating stage fright
  • basic structure of presentations
  • making a cohesive presentation
  • volume and intonation
  • note card use
