Next BPS Meeting February 28, 2013. You can find a schedule for the rest of the year under General Information.

Chapter Dinner: February 28, 2013. Look for the coming e-vite to know what to bring. Students will present their current event speeches and new YSG presentations.

ICCFS Tournament: If you would like to help our students improve their presentations by providing feedback, please sign-up on our Evaluator Sign-up Form. Evaluators are needed for Friday and Saturday, February 22-23. 

Flood the Five Conference: There is so much members can experience at the conference that doesn’t happen in chapter – leadership training, community with other ICC families, peer mentoring, activities, simulations and Model UN. And it is also great training for parents so they’re better equipped to help their students. So, plan to attend

Beginning Public Speaking Homework (BPS) ages 6-10yrs

1.  Use the feedback you received in chapter and finish memorizing the Current Event speech (BPS pg 40 - 41) to make it your “excellent best.” The final presentation will be Feb. 28. You can find age adjusted assignments in the BPS Homework folder under Resources.

2.  Read through God’s Grand Story in the little green booklet until you’re familiar with it. Then memorize the BPS and BPS+ Bible verses for our Chapter Presentation found at the end of the presentation script. (Presentation Script is found under Resources.)

Young Speakers Guild Homework (YSG) ages 11-18yrs

1. Complete pages 21 – 25 in Activity #1. Look for opportunities to practice your limited preparation skills in conversation this week and record them on page 28. We will continue to practice Limited Prep during small group the next few weeks so look over the Limited Prep Topics from the ICC website.

2.  Complete pages 58-59, 62-63 in Activity #2. Be looking for opportunities in the community to use your new skills and record them on page 61. We will be practicing “Salesman Squabble” next week.

3.  Memorize your parts for our Chapter Presentation. You can print out your own copy of the Presentation Script found in Resources. Here are some suggestions:

- Practice by reading through the script at least once in the morning and once at night.

- Read through it as a family, having different family members take parts so you can practice your part and when you need to speak.

- As you read it, picture what you will be doing as you say your part.

- Carry the script with you and read through it when you have spare time.
