South Texas Christian Schools Speech Meet Grades 1-8
Materials for the 2016-2017 school year now available!
Annapolis Christian Academy participates in the South Texas Christian School Speech Meet each year in order to provide a platform for students enrolled in regional Christian schools to develop rhetoric skills from an early age. This opportunity makes use of classical educational pedagogy where students are challenged to develop the skills of memorization, public speaking, and social grace. We, and other area schools, hold classroom speech meets for grades 1-8. Students choose from an official list and memorize and perform their selection before judges. Students may choose from a variety of categories–Bible memory, poetry, dramatic interpretation, or patriotic recitation. Qualifiers are selected from each category in each grade to compete at an area wide speech.
