Speech & Debate Class

- Middle&High

- June 15th ~July 27th  (7week)

- Every Saturday 9:30~11:30

Week 1-The focus of the course is the building of self-confidence and the proper way to deliver a speech in front of an audience. Students will then be given a short poem to read in front of the group to practice some of the techniques we've discussed.  

Week 2- The second week, the students will be presenting their "bags". From there, we'll talk about how to talk while demonstrating something.  During class, they will be given an object of some sort and then have 10 minutes to think up a story to go with the object.              

Week 3- The students will start with a presentation of their "how to" speeches.  Performance. How to speak with dramatic emphasis. There is more to speaking than reading words on a paper. There is more to reading a story than just reciting what is written.    

Week 4- Present their dramatic reading. Persuasion- The subject of the day will be persuasive speech and proper ways to present an argument in a debate situation.                

Week 5- Present persuasive speeches  Debate- We will discuss debate format and different approaches to argumentation.   We will then divide the class into small groups. Each group will pick a subject for a debate. Depending on the number of students groups can be as few as two or as many as four.

Week 6- Debate- The class will focus on the team debates they have prepared.

Week 7- Debate- The class will focus on the team debates they have prepared and final presentation.

Tell your opinion in front of the public confidently!

I'm very happy with the results(ACT score) my son achieved. Mona went above and beyond and motivated my son to take more ACT practice tests every week.My son also worked on college essays with a coach at EEC, who's very experienced, which helped bring my son's writing skills to an entirely different level. I highly recommend EEC for anyone looking for ACT prep/SAT prep/college essays.

02 // Subject We Tutor

"EEC is a great tutoring center. They give you personal attention that is hard to find elsewhere. After I started working with them, I was able to raise my ACT composite score 2 points, which is very difficult to do once your score is in the 30s. I definitely recommend this center for anyone looking to raise their ACT scores, or even for raising their grades".

I came to EEC to improve my SAT score, and the class sizes were very small so that I was able to get very close attention. The hours were convenient and not overwhelming unlike some other hardcore SAT classes, and with the help of the teachers I felt like I was able to learn more in less time.I really felt like they wanted me to succeed, and I got a 1430 on the November SAT. I wish that I could rate this place 6 stars.

My daughter has been attending since July 2017 and she loves it. We all know Pleasanton is a very competitive academically and also a stressful environment and EEC helps to alleviate that for the student AND parent. We all want the best for our kids, so I was looking for a place with a personal touch, and this place has it. I highly recommend EEC to everyone. Their spots book up quickly, so call them soon.

I have been going to this tutoring center since 8th grade. Now as a senior reflecting back on my high school life, I would have not survived rigorous courseworks without EEC. They help you from math to college essays (basically anything you would like to get help on). For example, I was able to get A on AP Chem with reviewing and solving practice problems here. I highly recommend this center if you need help for any types of courses.
