Improving Public Speaking in the K-12 Classroom with Cobey Mandarino

Thursday, February 3
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
$10

Public speaking is an invaluable life skill for students to practice in the classroom. Public speaking improves a student’s ability to communicate and connect, increases their self-esteem, and helps them organize their thoughts into compelling narratives. In this workshop, you will learn the instructional tools to help children find calm under stress, speak clearly and without fillers, understand body language, and use their intuition to exchange information.

This interactive workshop will be held on zoom and is great for all K-12 Classroom teachers and teaching artists looking to use public speaking more in their classrooms.
