    I will be teaching Public Speaking next semester for the first time to a mixed graded group if high school students. Your video is extremely helpful and has really given me a way to think about this better. This gives me a great jumping off point. Thank you so much!

    Thank you for the helpful notes in your article. I’ll be connecting with young leaders on public speaking next week and I found a lot of great insightful information here. Very helpful!

    I’m in the process of encouraging our Sunday School youth on Speaking. This article was very, very inspiring.
    Thank you much.

    I am going to be teaching Speaking to middle and high school next year. Thank you for the tips. I would really appreciate more suggestions for what else to call it. I don’t think “drama” really works though. Any others?

    Good recommendations. I benefited so much from Toastmasters International. Clubs still exist. Impromptu speaking practice very valuable. Looking the audience in the eye, moving around, even out into the audience, helps. But honest criticism is essential. Serious criticism, not just saying you did a good job, when you didn’t. Only 10% of the speakers these days are worth listening to. It’s a performance. Not everyone is good at it. But it changes your life if you become comfortable getting up in front of hundreds of people. Practice in small groups but the goal is to speak in front of more than 100. Then you are a great speaker, a leader. Must take criticism though

    All very good –
    the one thing kids need is practice, practice and practice:
    focus practice sessions on separate skills, like voice projection – making animal noises; pausing – reading poems; rhythm – singing; body language – mime; eye talk – more mime; words – football words – kicking words around; working together – interviews – debates; messaging – story-telling
    Where are you? I’m in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. My interest is Teaching Teachers in Indonesia how to Teach-Learn English Public Speaking. Please contact me if you’re interested in what I’m doing! CHAMP
