Using The Lab
Who We Are
Students can come to Speakers Lab to get help with speeches and
presentations, both individual and group. Speakers Lab can help
your students refine their topic, organize their research, and
effectively present their speech. After that, Speakers Lab can even
review the finished presentation with your students to help them do
even better next time.
Speakers Lab can help your
students with their presentations from beginning to end!
