Within the School and the Community--A Speaker's Bureau.
McClintock, Joy H.
Student interest prompted the formation of a Speaker's Bureau in Seminole Senior High School, Seminole, Florida. First, students compiled a list of community contacts, including civic clubs, churches, retirement villages, newspaper offices, and the County School Administration media center. A letter of introduction was composed and speaking programs selected according to public interest. Growing community support for student speaking engagements such as debates, skits, readings, and patriotic programs resulted in an enthusiastically growing speech program. Students benefited from exposure to the community, developed a bond with adults in the various groups and organizations they spoke to, and increased their confidence and poise in public speaking.
