​课程简介

演讲可大可小;小到日常课堂上的一次作业展示、参与竞选各类学生组织的竞选演说、甚至是被邀请向全校发表毕业感言;大到媒体发布、引领社会活动和思潮、甚至改变全球认知和局势——如何在或纵横捭阖、或和风细雨的表达之间,通过演说,用话语的力量来实现自己的目标,演讲之道绝对是成功的人生不可不知、不可不会的顶级技能之一。

 

但同时,对很多人来说公众演说可能也是最令人望而却步的技能。到底是要做一个临场慌乱不知所措的发言者,还是泰然自若挥洒自如的雄辩者?

本课程正是针对演讲技能进行全方位设计,通过系统的课堂学习活动、一对一的针对性指导和细致入微的实战训练,让学生建立如何组织语言、如何创作打磨演讲文稿,如何一步步克服恐惧心理、如何运用声音语调的节奏和抑扬顿挫、如何利用视觉辅助效果、如何掌动态肢体语言、以及如何全面有效达到预期效果的实用策略储备。
 

每周学生都会有针对其提高演讲术的写作与演说作业。课程最终会就学生选择的一个主题完成一篇全面打磨过的演讲文本,邀请父母参加由学生完成公众演讲。

月度强化练习

课程结束后,每位学员都会被邀请加入每月一次有关演说的不同主题指导和练习课程。 每个月我们会选取各自独立又相互关联的修辞元素作为主题展开针对性指导和练习。每个主题课前都会提供练习题目供学员训练,大家也可以拿自己的实用讲稿来参与讨论,集思广益,精益求精。月度指导练习课各有主题,每年10次课,2到11月循环展开,学员可以随时灵活加入。

​月度指导练习5大主题:

  1. 剖析讲稿内容

  2. 突出演讲主线

  3. 解构复杂观点

  4. 通过语言和视觉材料增强演说效果

  5. 声效技巧和讲台呈现
