Journey Debate Class - Winter
Journey School Debate Class introduces students in grades 5 through 8 to the structure of modified parliamentary debate and the fundamentals of argumentation, refutation, and speaking with confidence. This is the same style of debate used in the Orange County Debate League (OCDL).
New students are given an overview of modified parliamentary debate and are taught the structure of logical arguments and will be given ample practice speaking those arguments. Experienced students are guided to improve their confidence and persuasive speaking. Intermediate skills and practice include introductions and conclusions, analyzing opponents’ arguments for weaknesses, and constructing complex responses to arguments.
Throughout the class, students will engage in multiple debates on different topics. Topics are relevant and often about current real world issues, yet age appropriate.
This class is intended for students in or entering grades 5 through 8. Each season will feature a final day mini-tournament for all participants and parents will be invited to watch the children compete.
All materials are included in the registration price.
