S4| Introduction to YEAH! Assessments

Session Overview

Presentations can be scary, but they are an effective way to accomplish a few things: (1) to demonstrate what has been learned so far, (2) to practice public speaking, and (3) to build self-confidence. This session will put into practice the civics lessons that youth learned in the previous sessions by giving their group additional structure with elected positions and a focus on an assessment area.
