In this class we will learn about both global and local happenings, discuss their impacts, and debate America's involvement, or lack thereof. We will practice Public Speaking in every class to hone this critical skill. One of the keys to mastery is to have lots of opportunities to speak! With debate, students practice frequent, short and pointed persuasive speeches. Using the events that are tied to current events, we will explore the logic and skills of debate. Syllogisms, Deductive Reasoning, Inductive Reasoning and more! Debate skills seriously increase organizational skills necessary for effective writing; Learn how to turn a passionate argument into a logically accurate passionate argument!
Homework: There is homework every week in this class. Please be prepared to do research, organization work or argument preparation.
