Seventh and Eighth Graders in the Public Speaking elective welcomed teachers and administrators to watch their "Passion Projects." Students selected and researched a topic, transferred the information to bullet points and added pictures, photos, slides, and charts to enhance their presentations. Subjects included places to visit (The Netherlands, Ireland, South Africa, Israel, London, Los Angeles, and Hawaii); hobbies (sewing and baking); and sports (baseball, basketball, tennis, and soccer). One presentation focused on North Korea as a fascinating country, but suggested skipping a visit. Students practiced speaking loudly, slowly, clearly, looking at the audience and of course, remembering to smile!
