Course Description: The purpose of this course is to develop skills in public speaking and the use of rhetoric. From a practical perspective, the course aims to improve a student's speech capabilities in a variety of areas, including informing, analysing, debate, improvisation, and critical listening. More generally, the course's purpose is to boost the confidence of young learners, paying particular attention to their respective speech attributes, and helping them develop their stage presence and coherence of their argumentation. These are tools of great importance in today's increasingly media-driven world and serve to improve the professional opportunities of those who use them. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Understand different methods of speech delivery and how to use them 2. Analyse an audience and ascertain what type of speech delivery would best suit it 3. Draw an outline of a speech focusing on word choice, intonation, and flow 4. Deliver a written speech to an audience using a method of presentation from the course 5. Critically listen and identify the speech attributes of a selection of people 6.
