Does your child love the excitement of a debate? During this 5-week course, students will learn about different aspects of a debate, including writing opening and closing speeches, cross-examining their opponent’s arguments, and active listening amongst other techniques for forming and delivering persuasive arguments. Students will practice using changes in pitch and volume as well as pauses and facial expressions to evoke emotions in their audiences. Students will receive personalized feedback from the instructor and interact with their peers in numerous games, activities, and debates. This course is designed for students ages 7-10 and will help them in becoming confident public speakers. Join us on Friday at 4:00 PM, excluding holiday break.
