We suggest two pathways to launching your club.
One pathway provides three step-by-step lesson plans that will give you and your members a gradual, fun, and stress free introduction to the roles at a club meeting, techniques for Impromptus, a plan for preparing their first speech, and a foundation in how to effectively (and constructively) evaluate another member’s speech. Under this plan the first full, standard meeting is held at the 4th session.
The other pathway is to start with a full meeting. To do this, you will provide handbooks to members at least two weeks prior to the first meeting, have members review the meeting highlight video and protocol video, and pre-assign meeting roles, including speeches.
