Whenever you identify yourself as a Christian, you are a communicator for Christ. Teresa Moon has made it her life message and ministry to equip young people to be effective communicators for Christ. Beginning Public Speaking is the first step. Designed for elementary students, this material provides everything needed for an introduction to public speaking: lesson plans, assignments, tests, discussion materials and activities. If the teacher is not an experienced public communicator herself (or himself) not to worry! The two DVDs provide examples of effective speeches as well as instruction and interactive activities. There are also some humorous examples of what not to do. While I might wish for a more professional production, the enthusiasm of the young instructors is contagious. The Teacher's Edition provides lessons plans for ten class meetings (usually 1.5 2 hrs. in length). Using the DVDs as a sort of "spine" for these meetings, the lesson plans alternate between watching the DVD, class discussions and activities, watching sample speech presentations, and having the class participants prepare, give, and evaluate their own presentations. Each class meeting concludes with an assignment usually preparing a new type of speech. The Student Workpack, which is not reproducible, includes activity worksheets, critique sheets, and event specifics for the following different types of speeches: impromptu, expository, humorous, and extemporaneous speaking; dramatic and humorous interpretations; and persuasive oratory. In addition to the lesson plans, the Teacher's Edition includes all material from the Student Workpack plus directions and needed materials for the activities. For instance, the Teacher's Edition provides three pages of impromptu speaking topics that the teacher copies and cuts out so students can draw from the pile and then speak on the selected topics. The Complete Package includes the DVDs, Student Workpack, and Teacher's Edition. ~ Janice
