Earn academic credit for summer study.
Summer 2017: Public Speaking
week of June 26
week of July 17
Summer Public Speaking provides students the opportunity to earn .25 required graduation credit hours in one week! Through active participation, students will learn the essential researching, composing, and delivering skills necessary for oral presentations. Using student-driven content ,four types of presentations will be covered: demonstrative, informative, persuasive, and impromptu. We will work in a variety of speaking atmospheres--classroom, lecture hall, and large assembly room--both with and without microphones. Students will deliver four major presentations, demonstrating proficiency in oral communication as measured on the Competent Speaker Speech Performance Evaluation. There will be breaks throughout the day (in addition to a one-hour break for lunch) and students will have opportunities to be outdoors.
The class is graded. Grades will be given according to Pennington's system, with an annotated teacher review of student performance. Students earning credit will be expected to submit work online on July 10 and submit a final analysis of their work online after July 15. All work must be completed by July 22 to receive academic credit for the course.
