Speech class is a one semester class that is required for graduation at Central Lyon. The purpose of this class is to help students feel more comfortable speaking when in front of an audience by learning how to plan, prepare, and present a variety of speeches. A few of the speeches that we do in this class include impromptu, demonstration, and persuasive. Oftentimes, the highlight of the semester is the debates we hold at the end!
Below you will find links to the class syllabus and important documents that can be used for class.
The first quarter of speech class is primarily revolved around on informative speaking, which focuses on strictly relaying information in a planned, organized manner.
The second quarter of speech turns the focus onto persuasive speaking, which helps students to improve their critical thinking and analytical skills.
