NoVa PlayLabs is excited to bring to you Public Speaking classes by Highest Speak. Highest Speak has developed a curriculum that begins as early as Kindergarten and keeps growing with the child through grade 12, utilizing creative speaking exercises, games, lessons, practice, and, mindfulness to elevate public speaking and communication skills to their maximum potential. Their program further provides children with the tools and methods to approach any public speaking situation fearlessly and with enthusiasm throughout their academics, careers, and lives.
Topics to be covered will include:
– Basic Socialization
– Persuasive or “Sales” Pitch
– Acting and reading in character
– Reading out loud with confidence
– Story Telling
– Improvisation (Speaking on the spot)
– Creating a formal presentation and presenting for an audience.
– Verbal and Non-Verbal Elements of Communication
These lessons will also be taught through extremely fun speaking exercises and individual and group in class assignments. We will also work on mindfulness, gratitude, confidence, and positive attitude.
