The Voices of Excellence is a tightly focused literacy program to teach a fundamental skill set. Young participants in grades 6-8 can learn how to take their own raw, creative ideas and, using the five-paragraph form, produce a compelling narrative. Next, through training in oratory skills, they learn how to successfully present their topics to a live audience. The program stands as a model for developing skills in writing and oratory, encouraging pride and achievement in the participants' own intellectual abilities while preparing them for a future in a participatory democracy. Chapters include Why Do We Need This Program?; The Basics; The Five Paragraph Essay; Suggested Topics; Exercise to Enunciate, Evaluation Criteria; and sections on dress code, competition, and awards.
