Angie Wheat will be conducting workshops to be offered to all fifth through 12th graders in the CNMI, to be held at the Joeten Kiyu Public Library. Coaches, teachers, and parents of fifth through 12th graders are also invited to attend and to learn.
The workshops will be held on April 2, Thursday, from 10:30am to 5pm, and on April 4, Saturday, from 9:15am to 3:30pm.
This is a two-day workshop covering all the topic areas that we offer here in the CNMI and most of what is offered at the national level.
These workshops will teach, guide and encourage students on how to find pieces, how to construct and/or interpret pieces, and how to deliver pieces, whether the pieces are in English, Chamorro, or Carolinian, for the National Junior Speech and Debate Association and National Speech and Debate Association competitions that are held here and at the national level.
Students and coaches will be working inside and outside the library during these workshops, sometimes by themselves and sometimes in pairs. The following events will be addressed during these workshops: Prose reading, Poetry reading, Storytelling, Impromptu Speaking, Original Oratory, Declamation, Expository Speaking, Extemporaneous Speaking, Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, United States Extemporaneous Speaking, Foreign Extemporaneous Speaking, and Debate.
There will be planned breaks and a lunch period, on your own. Students my bring their own lunch (to be eaten outside) or may go across the street to get something at one of the stores nearby.
The fee per day will be $40 for NJSDA and NSDA members and $50 for non-members and teachers, coaches or parents. No checks will be accepted.
Private times can be arranged with Wheat for later dates.
