All the Fuss About Public Speaking
Consistently, I hear visitors to ULS comment on how our students are particularly articulate. ULS students know how to look someone in the eye when they speak. They know how to project and speak clearly. Most importantly, Lakers know how to organize their thoughts and speak with confidence and conviction. These noticeable excellent public speaking skills of ULS children are no accident. The pattern of research, create and share starts with our JK3 class at ULS and weaves throughout all grades until graduation. There are daily learning activities such as morning meetings share time and student-led assemblies that make speaking in front of a group a "normal" occurrence in our classrooms. There are also major educational milestone events in which public presentation is a key component such as the fourth grade Magnum Opus, seventh and eighth grade Honors Projects and Senior Projects. At University Lake School, we appreciate and understand the importance of public speaking skills and how these skills truly differentiate you as an adult. Please enjoy the following article that reminds us why public speaking is so important and how ULS students benefit from public speaking being an everyday part of school.
