SENIOR SPEAKERS KICK OFF A NEW YEAR
At Berkeley Carroll, public speaking is considered a core competency, essential for global citizenship. The curriculum for every grade level, starting in PreK, helps students develop their proficiency and comfort in this skill. Our Senior Speakers Program is a true rite of passage for students, requiring every 12th grader to deliver a speech to the entire Upper School, with assemblies held once a week for this purpose.
This week's senior speakers were (left to right) Zoe D., Ana K. and Jake S. Zoe shared a number of facts about herself most people don't know, such as how she became obsessed with real estate at age 10, to illustrate how we often have a very one-dimensional view of identity. Ana's speech focused on friendship. Using spoken word poetry, she shared that it is important to let others know how you feel and that the best way to get help is to ask.
Jake spoke about the concept of time. He explained that life is a constant flow, not just a series of moments, and that although we want to have control over it, time will always move at a constant pace. Read more.
