Public Speaking

with Carol Clark-Flanagan P’93, ’97
Wednesday, June 23
4:00 – 4:45 p.m. ET

Giving a presentation in class, a speech to a large group while you are running for a leadership position, or an announcement to the whole school about an issue you are interested in to convince others to join your cause all require public speaking skills. Why mention these things? Because The Ethel Walker Middle School students do all three. Knowing how to write and deliver a persuasive speech just might be the most important skill you can develop in today’s world. It will also help you convince adults (yes, even your parents) that you are a very responsible person and should be able to do things that responsible kids should be allowed to do! This workshop will be taught by Walker’s Public Speaking, English, and History teacher Carol Clark-Flanagan P’93, ’97.


with Lee-Ann Harris P’13
Wednesday, June 30
4:00 – 4:45 p.m. ET

Join Lee-Ann Harris P’13, Walker’s Debate Coach and Math Teacher, for this 45-minute Zoom Introduction to Debate. You will learn the basics of debate, including drills and structuring arguments, and conclude with a mock debate. This is a perfect opportunity to improve your critical thinking and communication skills while working with other middle school girls.

Zoom Book Club

with Noël Grisanti
Wednesday, July 21
4:00 – 4:45 p.m. ET

“Summer is almost here and I don’t know about you… but this is my favorite time to read! There is nothing better than grabbing a good book, heading out to my favorite chair and spending the afternoon reading outside. The only thing that could make it better? Getting to talk about my favorite parts with someone else! Does that sound like you? If it does, then I would love to invite you to our Zoom Book Club!” – Walker’s faculty Noël Grisanti

You’re invited to The Ethel Walker School’s Zoom Book Club! Please join Walker’s teacher Noël Grisanti to discuss The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine, author of Ella Enchanted. This is a captivating story about heroism, courage and sisterhood.
