Debate 中学生辩论(Grade 6 - Grade 12)

Start Time: 
02:50 PM
End Time: 
03:40 PM
In Debate Class, students will learn how to debate and all the skills associated with it, including public speaking, argumentation, critical thinking, and research. This will be taught through lectures, hands-on practice, and in-class competitions. It will be part-instruction and part-practice. 

Homework will rarely be given. If classwork isn't finished or a piece is required for the next activity, there may be a small homework assignment. These should take no more than 30 minutes. 

Students will need a laptop, loose leaf paper (in a binder, folder, or notebook), and pens/pencils for this class. Materials will be distributed online and students are expected to stay organized. 
This class will teach research skills that gather usable evidence, writing argumentation spanning from logical initial points to rebuttals to closing statements, asking purposeful questions, taking notes during debates, speaking in a precise and explanatory manner, and many other life skills that are important in debate. These abilities will be useful not only in the context of a debate, but also in school, jobs, and life as a whole. 

Debate skills have the potential to help one to flourish and grow tremendously throughout one's lifetime. These skills will be provided through this class hopefully along with a love for debate.
