LET's Stand - Student Workbook - Secondary
LET’s Stand is an oral language, public speaking and communication programme designed to enhance students’ oracy skills so they can communicate with confidence and conviction. The 40-hour structured programme facilitates the explicit development of speaking and listening skills in students, which are essential for success in both learning and life.
To develop public speaking / oracy competency, students require regular opportunities to practise the skills of listening, evaluating and speaking. The Junior Cycle and Transition Year offer the ideal space to develop these skills in a supportive environment where students are encouraged to learn about, practise and build the 12 skills which contribute to effective communication. Public speaking is a transferable skill that supports a student’s self-image and overall wellbeing.
The programme includes an interactive student workbook and supporting detailed teacher manual with links to famous speeches from inspiring individuals.
The Student Workbook allows the student to develop their speech-writing abilities by providing a framework to write speeches with clarity of intention. There are 10 suggested project titles for students to explore and practise their public speaking skills.
