Debate teaches logical, evidence-based argumentation, a deeper level of reasoning, and the ability to anticipate & respond to counter arguments. It builds self-confidence and self-esteem through the practice of public speaking, independent thinking, and personal expression. Students will cultivate empathy as they work together to learn how to debate positions and perspectives that may be different from their own. This class provide a foundation of critical thinking and socio-emotional skills that will benefit students (both in and out of the classroom) for years to come.
