Public Speaking

Summer 2014 quarter (Session I)

Taught by

performance, voice, community studies

Oral eloquence still counts when you need to explain, persuade, collaborate, and lead.  This intensive weekend course will help you learn to use your voice, body, and personal presence with confidence when speaking to others.  You will learn to channel stagefright into creative energy and to organize your thoughts into a structure your audience can grasp. Students will write, revise, rehearse and present a short speech; they will also have opportunities to practice speaking impromptu.  Credit will be awarded in Public Speaking.
