BIO     Lil Welch, known as Granny Lil, was born and raised in Louisiana. She graduated from Louisiana College in Pineville, Louisiana, where she majored in English education and minored in speech. Granny Lil did not begin her teaching career immediately. Instead, she spent several years as a stay-at-home mom and homemaker. When she did begin her teaching career, she found that it was more than a job; teaching for her was a calling. Granny Lil taught 5th grade, junior high, and high school over a twenty-year period. She also served on the board of her alma mater, Louisiana College.    Granny Lil is thrilled to join the staff of Discipleship Tutorial, where she hopes to grow closer to the Lord and influence her students to do the same.    If you ask Granny Lil what she treasures most in her life, besides her God, she would say her family: her husband of forty-five years, her five children, her ten grandchildren, and her 99-year-old mother.

Course Description/Outline/Objectives: 
Statistics show that most people rank public speaking as their # 1 fear!

With that in mind, consider this: Courage is not freedom from fear. On the contrary, courage is facing fear and meeting it head on!

My point? Everyone needs to be courageous enough to embrace public speaking! Speech courses are required by most colleges for a reason. Communication skills are skills beneficial to individuals from all walks of life. You may intend to attend a vocational school or college after high school, join the military, or go straight into the workforce. No matter what path you choose, positive communication is a must!

In speech class, you will be offered the opportunity to develop necessary communication skills.

* You will learn skills to help you manage your fear and present material effectively.

* You will watch videos of model presentations.

* You will learn to evaluate speeches so that you know what is expected of you.

* You will write and present informative speeches.

* You will write and present persuasive speeches.

* You will learn and practice interview skills.

* Researching a local business

A final note of encouragement: If you decide to take speech, you will find that the members of your speech class become family; they will encourage you to do your very best. I will do the same! As your teacher, I will be your biggest fan!
