Many students are nervous to speak in front of others because they do not feel equipped with the skills needed to deliver a speech. In this highly engaging and interactive class, learners gain confidence as they practice public speaking and communication skills.
Good speech organization is essential for anyone who wants to deliver a meaningful speech. Students will learn how to “take notes” to give a powerful speech. This course provides students with opportunities to …
- Organize their ideas for a speech in an orderly manner
- Deliver a quality speech
- Give and receive positive speech feedback
Great speakers are prepared speakers!
Students will learn speaking skills such as volume, eye contact, and body language!
Students are REQUIRED to use their webcam as they are delivering their speech. Please make sure their device has a working webcam prior to the class.
Homework is approximately 1 hour a week.
Give your child the public speaking skills they need for high school and college!
NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 10th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
This Study Skills Class is pure gold! My daughter has found bits and pieces from this class to help her work on being organizes, manage her time, and figure out her priorities in her lessons. This is the one class where she understands how studying is a work in process. Every middle school aged student should take this
I highly recommend for middle school, high school, and college students too! Great topics to help anyone get organized and various ways to study!!!”
Organization Leads to Dreams
My 12 year old son took this class this summer in preparation for more complicated classes in middle school and high school. I had assumed time management, use of highlighters, reading texts for comprehension, how to study for a midterm. Sure, all that was introduced, but more significantly, techniques for planning meant my son started to think and dream about his own future! What he would like to do over the next 2 years – 5 years -longer. Thanks Eva!
Incredible class. This class helped me understand and perfect key studying and test taking concepts. I had a really good time and this has definitely made me a better student.
An excellent course!
Study Skills with Eva Goldstein-Meola was an incredibly beneficial class! We learned about different study methods, how to be motivated, having an organized study space and so much more! A highly recommended course for anyone wanting to be an effective student.
Thanks, Mrs. Eva!
Great Class with proven strategies
G & M both enjoyed the study skills class but, more importantly, they both learned different strategies to help them as their work loads increase. They are both using their planners already. G is incorporating some of the note and test taking techniques to study for the SAT. I think the class was a great investment and sets them up well for future success in both school and life.
We’ve mentioned it to several of our friends. Thanks for offering the class!
Extremely beneficial class to take!
My son took this class and found it extremely beneficial. Eva’s advice on how to study, how to prepare and organize for class, and take notes was invaluable. My son, after being homeschooled since preschool, entered public school as an eighth grader. He has applied what he learned in the class and is doing an outstanding job in school.. He believes that Eva’s class prepared him for the transition. I highly recommend this class. I plan to have my other children take the class.
Excellent resources and Eva is an engaging, passionate teacher.
