For ages 12+, the intermediate program was established for students that have exceeded the expectations of the activities offered in the general class and have shown greater initiative in participating, completing work, and demonstrating their public speaking skills. The intermediate program is a smaller group of students where more challenging activities and lessons are offered in hopes to bring more depth into different public speaking forms. The intermediate program is exploration oriented which means that different forms of public speaking such as MUN, debate styles, and DECA are covered.
For ages 8-12, the general class was established to teach students about public speaking, writing, and presentation fundamentals. Lessons and fun class activities on the basics of reading, writing, and public speaking are classroom staples to keep students learning, engaged, and participating! Classes are taught by mentors who have skills and experience in language, as well as experience teaching children, with classes often breaking off into smaller groups to provide more attention and meaningful feedback to students in a safe and controlled environment.
