Westbriar Elementary School PTA
Grades 1-3Offered by Fairfax Collegiate. This introductory public speaking class introduces students to Spontaneous Argumentation (SPAR) in a structured and supportive environment. Exercises focus on public speaking skills, and developing persuasive arguments, rather than formal research and preparation. Students work on activities and presentations to hone their comfort and competence in a public speaking scenario. Over a series of extemporaneous debates and speeches on relevant topics for elementary school students, they learn how to construct arguments and speak persuasively and confidently to their audience of peers.
