Chalk Talk: Developing Public Speaking Skills
Many have experienced the nerves that happen before giving a speech, there are ways to help a child overcome this. First of all, help them identify the theme that is to be covered in the speech and then look for evidence that it truly is. This will help to build confidence in the material. Then pull in some friends that will have the same assignment. Ask each one to practice before the others. This will give the child familiar faces to focus on when giving the speech in class, plus the more practice they have in front of an audience, the more the fears will disappear. Part of public speaking includes knowing how to give and receive feedback. Gently, ask the child some information about what they are talking about and then tell them good things and constructive help regarding their speech. Finally, practice taking a deep breath, or two, before giving the speech to clear the mind and calm the nerves. Help them receive a good night’s sleep, a good breakfast and wish them good luck.
