Debate

High School Grades 9-12 (Repeatable)

Debate

Debate is designed to prepare students for college-level writing and future professional activities by providing them with the necessary skills for constructing, researching, organizing, crafting, and delivering arguments. Students will demonstrate knowledge of the procedures used in various forms of debate, discover, and utilize significant philosophical ideologies as a basis of debate, and operate effectively in teams to prepare for and participate in Public Forum, Lincoln-Douglas, and Parliamentary forms of debate. Students will listen and critique the arguments of others - both in competition and in-class peer evaluation. Debate is an elective course open to students in grades 9-12 that may be repeated.
