If we always experience the same audience when talking then we get stuck in a comfort zone. Liven this up and provide a number of opportunities to talk to or in front of different audiences. If the children only ever talk to their teacher they will never get up and talk in front of a group of parents. Spice it up and plan for opportunities beyond the classroom.
Below are some suggestions for different audiences:
- Large / small group
- Familiar – teacher or parent at home
- Unfamiliar – group of parents or new parent
