Development of Public Speaking and Presentation Skills. At GCSE students are given the experience of Public Speaking as part of the GCSE English Spoken Element. This course will build on that. They explore 3 key elements of the art of Public Speaking from the Book: “Talk like Ted” by Carmine Gallo: Emotional, Novel and Memorable. Students are then equipped with essential practical skills, associated with each element: Unleash the Master, Story Telling, Conversation, Teach Me Something New, Jaw Dropping Moments, Lighten Up, 18 Minute Rule, Paint A Mental Picture, Stay in Your Lane.
Students are then ready to present throughout the rest of the year. The start of each lesson will feature 2 or 3 students speaking on a topic of their choice for up to 4 minutes.
