Public Speaking and Writing
At Dominion, the upper school focuses on mastering the art of rhetoric, or artful expression. As students become more concerned with how others view them, the upper school equips them to communicate with poise and eloquence. Our program helps students add the art of persuasive communication to their academic skill set.
Knowing facts and reasoning logically cannot be put to good use unless one can wisely communicate the truth behind the facts and ideas. Students are trained to speak carefully and purposefully, and to write effectively and gracefully, in order to influence the world around them. All subjects require that the student engage with the material in a thoughtful way.
