Learning Public Speaking Skills

Public-speaking super heroes to the rescue! Did you know that the fear of public speaking ranks higher than the fear of death for average Americans? Volunteer Ashwin Prabu led an anxiety-free session on writing and public speaking for our campers. She had them create a super hero and his/her super powers, draw a picture and write a description. After 20 minutes of brainstorming and writing, students presented their super heroes in front of the class to develop experience speaking in public. Fear not, brave campers!
