Oratory Symposium

Oratory Symposium
Picture an oratory lab where students use ancient and contemporary rhetorical techniques to sharpen their persuasive writing and speaking skills. In this course co-taught with speaking coach Kate Hilscher ‘20.5, students will read, watch, and listen to great speeches past and present, analyzing what it takes, not just to capture and hold attention, but to move an audience to action. Students will also learn by teaching each other, using practices developed in “Oratory Games & Game Changers: A Peer Coaching Playbook,” authored by Yeaton & Hilscher. Finally, rather than take a final exam, students will produce, emcee and participate in a festival of speaking events: The Oratory Symposium
