Weekly All School Bulletin
In the fall, one could not have possibly imagined that seventh graders would be delivering the spring Declamation in a Ted Talk style just a few months later! From standing behind a podium in December to strolling confidently across the stage in May, seventh graders demonstrated their growth as writers and public speakers. Each student touched on several of Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences, sharing the impact of those intelligences on the world, and more importantly, on their own lives. Through preparation, practice and an innate passion for the subject, seventh graders captivated the audience! Each student left the Recital Hall feeling a sense of pride and accomplishment.
As members of the audience, current sixth graders were astounded by the performance of their more experienced peers. They noted expertise in eye contact, movement, modulation of voice and confidence. Next year, it will be their turn, and I cannot wait for this experience to shape their seventh grade year!
