Today's teens are tomorrow's leaders. They will be leaders at home, at work and in local and global communities. As leaders they will need to speak up. They will need to be heard. They will need to be proficient not only at texting, but also at talking!
This book, which is not a traditional textbook, but a classroom tool for running a speech class, focuses on providing maximum speaking opportunities for students with the goal of having every student speak at every class session. Students speak as assigned speakers, evaluators, impromptu speakers and in other roles (impromptu leader, grammarian and timer). Students will take notes and fill out assignment forms in their own copies of the book.
