Communication and Public Speaking

This course centers on the fundamentals of communication and public speaking. The classroom environment is an empowering space for continued practice, mindfulness, and confidence-building in the delivery and methods used to listen, write, speak, and present before an audience. Students will learn how to identify the main points of speeches and incorporate them in outline format. During the final week of the course, students will present their speeches and engage in a question and answer (Q&A) session as their culminating project. While this is not an IB course, it highlights the importance of being a communicator, one of the IB Learner Profile characteristics.
