Our youngest middle schoolers wowed their friends, family and teachers last Thursday, as they delivered outstanding speeches. This preview to Declamations allowed the students to practice instructional writing skills and critical thinking and reasoning skills, as they developed a formal speech for the last public speaking event of the year!
Choosing a quotation from the work of Dr. Seuss, students analyzed the words, interpreted the meaning and made a personal connection. Each student offered something important to the audience from motivation to determination to the realities of imperfections to individuality to being positive in the face of adversity.
We are so proud of all of our students!
