Grades 8-10 Debate and Critical Thinking 8033.C2 (PERIOD 2) 9:45AM-10:40AM

« back to classes page
Entering grades eight to 10 – The challenge for young people is to present new ideas to solve world issues. Presenting those ideas in a clear, logical and engaging style is a critical skill. This course refines public speaking skills and introduces two high school debate events: Lincoln-Douglas and Public Forum. Students will debate current events, hold an in-class tournament and learn how to be a great speaker and debater.  Because this course is designed for older students, students will encounter more topics and debates than in the sixth- and seventh-grade course at a more rapid pace.
