Academic Roundtable – When The Oratory Light Is On: How Attention to Speaking Can Help Us Teach
Yes, it’s a college-wide learning goal, an FYS learning goal, and we know it’s a critically important skill, but honestly who can afford the precious class-time it takes to teach oral expression? Colleagues Shawna Shapiro (Writing and Linguistics Programs) and Sarah Stroup (Political Science) will join Oratory Now Director Dana Yeaton (Theater) in a demonstration and discussion of the many ways, large and small, we can use speaking to deepen, broaden, and in some cases even expedite, what we already do.
