Public Speaking Competencies

Competencies provide a pathway for teachers who are looking to guide their students to the next level. Competencies are available for those schools and districts that have not already established competencies for public speaking. Teachers of public speaking may hold a certificate in any subject area.

The competency committee members looked at existing competencies within and outside of our state to determine which essential skills should be included in our Oklahoma competencies. What has resulted is guidanceĀ that will help our students be college and career ready.

If you have any questions about the competencies, please email Dr. Elizabeth Maughan, Project Manager of Fine Arts, at or Jason Stephenson, Project Manager of Secondary English Language Arts and Library Media at
