为什么朗诵?

Declamations have become a revered, signature event in the journey of a St. 卢克是中学生. 请通读这篇最近的Q&A session with a Declamations advisor to learn more:

7项清单.

  • Why is this program a focus in 8th grade?

    作为一个学校, we are keenly aware of the importance of public speaking and communication in planning for students’ future in the global community, 作为八年级的老师, we are sensitive to the growing self-understanding and awareness that 13 and 14-year-olds undergo daily. We know how self-conscious a young orator might be in speaking to their peers and their families. So we infuse the program with speaking techniques that build confidence and a rigorous content development process that teaches the foundation to a successful speech -- using one’s voice to blend language and rhetoric with insight to create interest and intrigue in one’s audience. Add an equally large dose of compassion and 鼓励, and there you have the Declamations.
  • What is most rewarding about Declamations?

    同情,鼓励,激情. Students dig deep to find a topic of personal meaning to them and work hard to conceive, 写, and present ideas that express what impressed or impacted them most in their research. The Declamations present a chrysalis moment, one in which you can see a young student become something larger, 更多的辐射, and persuasive than they have ever been in your presence before, 就在你眼前. 父母看到了. 教师和教职员工看到了这一点. 学生们感觉到了.
  • 为什么要花8周时间在演讲上?

    For most people, public speaking is wrought with anxiety. St. 卢克的 teachers take great care in helping students begin to feel the transformation that is occurring through a stepped process, 有大量的练习时间, 鼓励, 和认可. It is an opportunity for teachers to voice to a student those qualities about the presentation of his or her self that is unique to them, those parts of their character that shine through in that chrysalis moment.
  • What specific techniques do students master?

    The Declamations teach you to “bowl” with your eyes (eye contact), how to trick your body into avoiding tics (body language), and how to breathe in order to be louder, but the program is also about learning who you are and then sharing yourself with an audience. Letting people look at you and commanding their chain of thought. Every student comes away with a sense of accomplishment, an understanding of speaking techniques, and a new idea about their capabilities. If you know 13 and 14-year-olds, then you know this is the perfect time for such revelations.
  • 学生使用什么工具?

    We use technology for practice and peer-to-peer feedback. Students record video and/or audio of their practice sessions, and team members leave audio comments. We also have Upper school students act as mentors and leave audio comments on practice sessions as well.
  • 《bet356亚洲版在线体育网址投注》最近的重点是什么?

    One student arrived at the beginning of the school year from Spain, delivering her speech in Spanish. This international flavor was a thrill for 学生们 and, 最重要的是, a means for the presenter to “find her voice” in a way that was most natural and comfortable for her. The confidence that she exuded and the nobility of her subject, 安托瓦内特凝灰岩, contributed substantially to the depth of the Declamations.

    在一般情况下, Declamations has a positive effect on all involved - teachers, 父母, 最重要的是, 学生们.
  • Beyond public speaking skills, what do students gain from Declamations?

    One of the highlights of the program goes beyond the academic exercise. It's a shared experience that truly unites and builds a community of learners who support each other through the process. These students should be extremely proud. As impressive as each individual speech is, we applaud the class as a whole for working together and for encouraging each other to reach a potential that might only have been realized through the support of peers. It's extremely rewarding as an educator to see these young students grow, 成熟的, gain confidence and develop character traits that will serve them far beyond our classroom walls.
