Undergrad: Openings (VIRTUAL)
August 9 - August 10
In the Opening course, Course #2, you will work in small-group sessions with one-on-one faculty guidance that will help shape, create and sharpen, and sharpen again, your opening statement using the trial tested methods developed by Don Keenan and other KTI faculty members. In a safe, supportive, but challenging environment of a small group, you will learn how to present your opening, one section at a time.
Then guided by direct feedback you will be able to continue the process of refining your opening statement, with the goal being to learn how to present an opening statement that leaves the defense nowhere to hide. You will learn that how you present your opening is as important as the words in the opening. Thus, you will get one-on-one faculty feedback, as well as group feedback, to develop an effective on your feet delivery. You will also work with your faculty member to develop your current case’s optimum order of proof.
The ultimate goal of this course is for you to leave confident and prepared to develop a powerful and effective opening statement…. on your own!
