There is less than one week left until PHC's Speech, Entrepreneurship & Economics, and Moot Court Camps begin! Registration officially closes at 11:59p.m. on Wednesday, July 1st, so make sure to register now so you don't miss out! Our instructors and counselor team are excited to work with you this summer, and we have some great activities and lectures planned for you!
We have a few updates about each of the camps for you to read over!
Here are a few exciting details about our Speech camp:
See Rhetorical Figures in Action
- Students will learn 40 classical rhetorical devices and see how each influences the dynamic of a speech through performance and analysis.
Persuade through Audience Awareness and Interaction
- All speeches aim towards persuading an audience, whether the audience is favorable or antagonistic to the speaker. Many of the details in a speech, whether it is the language or the pacing, reflect the speaker's attempts to engage his or her audience. Instead of speaking to an abstract audience, students will learn how to use the text when interacting with their classmates and how to use such interactions to further drive the argument of the speech.
Learn What Makes a Timeless Speech
- Legendary speeches make a mark in their historical context by persuading their immediate audiences and become timeless by teaching future generations. Students will learn ways in which a speaker addresses an audience's hopes and fears across time.
