9781478309130: Speech Class for Teens: 28 Speech Class Lessons Plus Handouts and Forms

Today's teens are tomorrow's leaders.  They will be leaders at home, at work and in local and global communities.  As leaders they will need to speak up. They will need to be heard.  They will need to be proficient not only at texting, but also at talking!  

This book, which is not a traditional textbook, but a classroom tool for running a speech class, focuses on providing maximum speaking opportunities for students with the goal of having every student speak at every class session.  Students speak as assigned speakers, evaluators, impromptu speakers and in other roles (impromptu leader, grammarian and timer). Students will take notes and fill out assignment forms in their own copies of the book.

    From the Author:

    As a speech class instructor, professional speaker (including youth audiences), Toastmaster, and former home educator, I have a desire to equip the next generation of leaders with the skills and confidence to make themselves heard. 
    After spending many, many hours researching, writing, formatting, photo copying and organizing class materials into binders for students, I decided that not only did I want to make my class easier for me to teach, I also wanted to share my efforts with others.   My experience with Toastmasters International's educational program and meeting structure has heavily influenced the content and structure of this book.  If you are familiar with how a Toastmaster meeting runs, you can think of the class instructor as acting as both the Toastmaster and the General Evaluator.

    From the Back Cover:

    "Speech is power:  Speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel."~Ralph Waldo Emerson
    The best leaders are good speakers and the best jobs usually go to the best communicators.
    "William has been putting the skills he is learning to good use.  He had to give an impromptu (no clue he needed to do it even) yesterday in front of about 50 people about his National Jamboree experience.  He stood nicely, looked at people, spoke loudly enough so that he didn't need a microphone and basically did a nice job of helping recruit for the next Jamboree."~Parent of speech class student
