Student Enrichment: Ideas Worth Spreading

February 5, 2016

Have a student in 6th-8th grade interested in developing their public speaking skills?  Check out this Student Enrichment opportunity!

Ideas Worth Spreading

Presented by: Elisa Farrell

March 4th (4 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.)

March 5th (9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.; parent presentations beginning at 2:00 p.m.)

Coppell Middle School North

$50.00 for CGA Members

Pre-Registration is Required

In this workshop, learners explore the basics of public speaking by tapping into their own interests and sharing their ideas worth spreading.  Instead of a one-size-fits-all memorized speech, they start with what makes them excited, then layer in the principles of topic generation, formation, and presentation. They will build their persuasive and/or expository writing skills, practice public speaking (with a time limit), experience the design loop of feedback and improvement, and most importantly, let loose their creativity!

Workshop includes dinner on Friday night, light breakfast on Saturday morning and lunch on Saturday.

As of February 22nd, this workshop is full.  If you would like to be on a waitlist, please e-mail studentevents@coppellgifted.org.
