BHSM Stories: Roberge School
River Vale, New Jersey
We are "Communicating with P.R.I.D.E." (Projection, Rate,
Inflection, Diction, and Eye Contact) during Better Hearing and
Speech Month at Roberge School in River Vale, New Jersey. We are
just completing our own DVD that highlights the importance of
communicating with P.R.I.D.E. The DVD features humorous segments
depicting classroom teachers NOT using the P.R.I.D.E.
characteristics. The DVD will be shown to all elementary classes
during BHSM. Lively discussions led by our graduating 5th grade
speech students will follow each presentation.
This focus on "public speaking" addresses a real
concern of our classroom teachers and parents. All participants had
a wonderful time creating this DVD.
