Summer Speech Camp 2012
The dates have been set for camp:
Mon. June 18th - Thurs. June 21st,
from 9am -noon.
Hey, Speech Team
You are officially invited to attend the 1st annual FHS speech and debate summer camp. Camp is scheduled for June 18th - June 21st from 9am-noon. During each of these days, coaches will be available to help you get a jump start on next year. We’ll have scheduled focus sessions for each day to help you work on things like movement, gestures, volume, humor, etc… and we’ll have a BBQ at my house at the end of the last day to celebrate the beginning of a new speech season.
In addition to providing focused skill tutorials, this camp is designed to give you access to your coaches and computers in order to jump-start your preparation. For interp and memorized events, this is a wonderful time to begin selecting a topic or piece. In short prep, you can refine your skills and discuss basic world events. In policy debate, the topic is already available, so research and cases can begin. In LD, Legi, and Public Forum, students can work on speaking skills, cross examination approach, and more generic research for quotations and philosophy.
We recognize that many of you have summer jobs, vacations, and other obligations. Therefore, it is not mandatory that you show up for every session or even every day. Come when you are available.
Thanks so much for your dedication to FHS speech and debate.
