Refresher training 3:  'Make it your own'

The objective of this training session is to empower the teachers to use the Mighty Oak programme in a way that fits with and blends with class topics and the curriculum. We review the programme and identify key areas for flexibility and creativity.  We understand that there may be new staff members and that some staff will have changed classes.  The trainer will take this into account throughout the workshop. All staff members will be actively involved.  The staff are encouraged to discuss their experiences with the programme in the past years.

Topics covered include:

Why we teach public speaking

What makes the programme work and how can we transfer this to the wider scope of curriculum topics for our class?

The 4 tools of public speaking - using curriculum context for practising these tools

Interactive session - everyone speaking - how to encourage creativity

The teachers' tool kit - how to use your own strengths in addition to the Mighty Oak toolkit
