Elocution Pieces for Students Elocution pieces used to be excerpts from great literary works of renowned authors. Students usually learned and declaimed vibrant passages that belonged to the past and had little bearing on their real-life experiences. This book contains a collection of elocution pieces, all written by a teacher who trains children of all ages in public speaking and elocution. Distilled from years of first-hand experience, these passages cover a wide range of topics and in their charming simplicity convey precious messages. Packed with power, spiced with humor and ringing with rhythm as they are, these pieces have — nearly all of them —won prizes in several schools and inter-school competitions. No doubt, students at all levels will immensely benefit from this unique book.
