    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Public speaking gives you qualities you will use your whole life unlike some other high school classes. We public speak everyday! It's important to know the correct way to present yourself in front of people especially in the working world. Public speaking really allows you to break out of your shell and open up to those around you.

    Course highlights:

    In this class I learned techniques to speak in front of others. One technique I've learned is beneficial is to look between people in the audience's eyebrows and not directly into their eyes because some tend to feel uncomfortable with direct eye contact. Another technique I learned was that if possible always come prepared. Always know have a solid introduction, body, and conclusion and if possible include proven facts/stats into your speeches. One of the most important techniques is to just have fun with it! Public doesn't always have to be intimidating, show your audience who you are through your speech.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Unless you have to memorize a speech there really is no studying involved. It's important to know what you're talking about so always have an outline with you if possible, but a speech is more fun to watch and people tend to pay more attention if you act as a natural speaker even if you are not one! Always look over what you have so you know where you're going with your speech, but do not read like a robot. Do not memorize it word for word and read in a monotone voice, put some life in it!
