Enrichment Writing & Public Speaking – Markham Campus

Sunday, January 1 - Tuesday, June 20

At Power of Words Academy developing strong communication skills is essential to effective leadership. Our after-school program prepares children with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to master writing and public speaking. Our school year programs, summer camps and courses are offered online (using the Zoom platform and Google Classroom) and in-person (at our North York, Mississauga and Markham Campuses).

2022/2023 Power of Words Enrichment Writing and Public Speaking School Year Program is for children in grades 2 to 8. The program runs the school year from September to June with classes held once a week for 90 minutes.

The program comprises of three units:

Unit 1 – Reading Comprehension and Summarizing Unit (where students will learn how to examine texts and extract the main ideas and key details)
Unit 2 – Writing Unit (where students learn the structure of writing four types of essays, including the expository, persuasive, comparative and contrast and research essays)
Unit 3 – Public Speaking and Debate Unit (where students learn how to write and deliver a speech, as well as develop debate skills). In addition, 20 minutes of each class during the school year is dedicated to the building blocks of writing (including vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, etc). During this segment, students will be given two mini-lessons and work out of the Language Power Now workbooks.

Markham Class Time – Tuesdays from 6:00PM to 7:30PM
