Public Speaking Class reads to Elementary Students Public Speaking Class reads to Elementary Students: Public Speaking is an elective offered at the high school level for students who want to improve their confidence while speaking in front of a group.  The elective is based around practicing the skill of speaking as much as possible to build a student’s courage and self-assurance.
