Public Speaking

The Art of Public Speaking 


SKU: HSPUBSPKING Categories: , ,

A famous public speaker once said,

We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves to those we let slip out.

       -Winston Churchill

Research says (and you probably agree!) that speaking in front of others is considered the number one noted fear. Learning to overcome the fear of public speaking will help your student be more successful in college and in the workplace for the rest of his life.

Public Speaking

But how do I teach public speaking at home?

Teach your high school students public speaking with our high school course, and then look for ways for them to practice, practice, practice! Speaking in front of others comfortably will give them confidence and help them to stand out, whether in college interviews or job searches. Help your homeschooler gain confidence by teaching them public speaking.

Although this course can be easily taught to one student, you can make it more fun by grabbing a group of students. (If you’re interested in that, check with us about special group rates!)

The Art of Public Speaking is 60+ pages, printed black and white and coil bound.

This one semester course covers four major types of speeches in a step-by-step approach:

  • Impromptu • Expository • Persuasive • Apologetic

Focusing on examples of some of the most influential speakers in history, including Abraham Lincoln, C.S. Lewis, A.W. Tozer, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Martin Luther King, this course will lead your high schooler  through the preparation and steps of giving a speech.

The Art of Public speaking features:

  • tools such as speech maps and note cards which will help your student learn to organize his thoughts
  • helps to prevent and overcome nervous habits
  • tips for using visual aids
  • topic ideas, online resources, evaluation forms and rubrics
  • instructions for using this course for honors credit

Students interested in debate will also find this is an excellent preparatory course for speaking in front of others.

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?

You don’t have to daydream about tying them to their chairs to get their work done.

Instead, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and dangerous escapes. Not only are many of the books we recommend exciting, they often teach real-life lessons on overcoming adversity and building character.

Instead of begging them to read another chapter in their ho-hum textbooks, immerse your children in the sights and sounds of history through reading excellent books. Bring history, science and fine arts to life by reading our best-of-the-best book suggestions and choosing among our many activity and lesson ideas.

Are you worried you aren’t covering enough?

Take a deep breath and stop worrying with our open and go Daily Lesson Plans covering history, language arts, science (K-8th) and fine arts.

All done for you and ready to go.


OR…you might like to craft your OWN lesson plans rather than being told what to say and do.

Put together your own lessons in history, language arts, science, and fine arts using our Unit Program Tools with hundreds of pre-read, best-of-the-best book suggestions and assignment ideas.
