Leadership for Life – Much more than Public Speaking
SMARTS Club is proud to announce that we are offering an ongoing Leadership for Life class throughout the year! Leadership for Life is one of our most popular classes because not only does it build upon social and writing skills, but it is also one of our most engaging classes ever.
SMARTS Club has spoken to many parents concerned about their child’s ability to give presentations at school, speak in public and make friends. Speech and debate classes are excellent environments for building confidence in those areas as well as improving knowledge about supporting an argument; something often needed to do well on the writing STAAR.
This unique 1-hour online class focuses on a new concept each week, starting with the students getting comfortable with each other. In creating the course, our experienced debate teacher drew from drama games, corporate ice-breaking techniques, citizenship, and government skills, writing courses and professional debate techniques in order to create the ultimate critical thinking course.
