Speech Club

The purpose of speech club is to develop and prepare students for speech tournaments as well as for community platforms.  This is accomplished through instruction, practice and critiquing with each student committed to do his/her best.  Students choose literary pieces from published works or their own original writings, depending on the speech category.

Platform: Original Oratory; Persuasive; Expository

Limited Preparation:  Extemporaneous Speaking;  Apologetics; Mars Hill

Interpretive :   Humorous Interp; Duo InterpDramatic Interp.; Open Interp

Wild Card Events: Inspirational Motivational Speaking

Instruction on how to find, write or cut and perform a good speech is provided at Speech Camp and reviewed during the fall semester. Weekly meetings include small group practice with parents coaches and fellow students. 

Practice and homework may take 2-3 hours per week during the fall semester until pieces are selected and memorized.
