Debates are an important part of the political process, but for some, they are also a team sport. You research a topic, then you use your creativity, logical thinking and powers of persuasion to argue – nope, not what you think, but both sides of the issue! In this program, you will improve your public speaking and research skills as you deeply explore topics in current affairs, and learn how to present an argument convincingly and concisely within a time limit (2-4 minutes!). You will learn how others think about an issue, and take many perspectives that help you understand and communicate effectively in a global society.
Instructor: Yonatan Schreiber, Debate, Philosophy, and Logic teacher
