Guest speakers can be an effective method of bringing workplace learning into the classroom at all grade levels. Guest speakers can bring a sense of legitimacy to topics, helping students understand the relevance of classroom learning to the world of work. Speakers can help students understand how work relates to personal development and the needs and functions of society.
In order to facilitate business speakers in the classroom, the Chamber and its network of businesses will provide speakers to area schools upon request. This is a great opportunity for businesses, schools, and students to interact on a more personal level.
To request a speaker for your classroom, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
