Prosser, WA (PRWEB)August 09, 2017
Red Comet is introducing several new high school courses in the subject area of English & Language Arts. For the 2017-18 school year, students may enroll in the advanced English course Great Speeches, Debates & Essays.
In the Great Speeches, Debates and Essays Course, students will not only learn about historical pieces of literature and oratory, but will also examine their use of language, how messages are communicated and delivered for the desired effect. This form of communication is so vital because time and time again, it has shaped history. Aside from events beyond our control, nothing has shown to have as much power as a well-performed speech. By the end of this course, students will understand how to analyze and respond to speeches, debates and essays, how to write clear arguments and counterarguments and deliver with emotion and command of the English language.
