Why Does OLS Have Presentation Class?
During our OLS summer program, on Mondays and Wednesdays students will attend presentation class in the afternoon. The presentations can be group projects or can be individual presentations based on the theme of the week. We teach these classes because the presentation is a key part of students’ education. Here are some reasons why presentation classes and projects are so important.
1. Helps Students Avoid the Fear of Public Speaking
According to many polls and studies, public speaking is one of Americans’ greatest fears. People will do anything in order to avoid speaking in public. However, if students are exposed to speaking in public at a young age, they will be more likely to feel more comfortable speaking in front of others later on in life. Presenting in front of an audience also allows students to gain confidence in themselves and thus increase their self-esteem!
2. Presentations Help Students Learn to Research
For many of the older grade presentations, the students are required to do research on their topic. By doing this every week, students will be more comfortable locating sources and gaining more information on their own. This will help them in their future high school and college research assignments.
3. Presentations Allow Students to be Comfortable with Technology
For some of the students’ presentations, we ask them to create a PowerPoint presentation to give to the class based on the theme of the week. By making these presentations more often, students will become confident in using technology and learning critical thinking skills on how to effectively show their audience information in a fun or enticing way.
Presentation class is a wonderful way for students to become more comfortable with public speaking, research, and technology!
