RIGHT BRAIN CURRICULUM - PUBLIC SPEAKING In our Public Speaking class, we take the fear out of speaking before an audience by getting kids talking in front a supportive group about things in which they are interested. They write speeches on subjects of their choice and practice delivering them to the assembled students. As the kids practice in this low-pressure environment, they learn skills like standing up tall, using a loud voice and making eye contact. We also watch famous and not-so-famous public speakers and critique what is successful and unsuccessful in their deliveries. The class concludes with students creating a TV news broadcast in which they serve as anchors.

Let?s continue to redefine kid food; one lesson, and one child at a time! Each class presents students with an opportunity to explore new or familiar foods in their raw, unmanipulated state. Then, working as a team, we?ll slice, dice, peel, measure, and cook until we?ve prepared the finished dish. Lessons are planned to celebrate seasonal produce ? warm you on a brisk Fall day and offer ideas for quick and healthy family meals. At the end of class your aspiring chef will receive the main ingredient, or a sample of the finished dish, and the recipe so that they can show off what they?ve learned! Even the most reluctant eaters enjoy KTK, where participation is expected, but tasting is always optional. Each session arrives with fresh new recipes and ideas to inspire your healthy eater! Kids have food allergies, but they shouldn?t miss out on the fun. We know allergies and can work around them, making sure that everyone is having fun and staying safe. * Please clearly disclose all food allergies and/or dietary restrictions upon registration.
