Whether it’s for a presentation at school, a job interview, or even in their future relationships, being able to effectively communicate is essential for success. Knowing what you want to say and being able to say it are really different. We help kids refine both.
Collaboration. Listening. Compromise. Whether they’re the quiet kid who hangs back, or the bold kid who loves to be heard, Speak Up gives kids the tools to work and communicate effectively with others. Speech and Drama has all the benefits of a team sport... but with more rhyming.
Understanding things from someone else’s point of view is the first step to a more equal world. In Drama, we examine fictional characters, learn to articulate emotions, understand intentions, and observe different ways of viewing the world.
Reading for the joy of it and gobbling up poems and stories is something Speak Up kids relish. Literature has the power to educate, to inspire and inform. Our students are encouraged to figure out what they like, and are taught to think critically.
