My Students

I teach English III to boys and girls who are gifted. They take Gifted or Advanced Placement courses. Many of them are good writers and take pride in their progress.

My students love to participate in competitions.

They like to meet other young people, and see what they do and learn from them.

Each year, we participate in Poetry Out Loud and it's a great success.

They also like to participate in Speech and Debate, which builds their self-confidence and boosts their public speaking abilities.

My Project

Presentations are meant to inform, inspire, and persuade audiences. So why then do so many audiences leave feeling like they've wasted their time? All too often, presentations don't resonate with the audience and move them to transformative action.

This is why I am asking a class set of 25 copies of the book Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences by Nancy Duarte.

"Resonate" will help my students learn how to make a strong connection with their audience and lead them to purposeful action. According to the author, the approach is simple: building a presentation today is a bit like writing a documentary. Using this approach, my students will learn how to convey their content with passion, persuasion, and impact.

Thank you!
