Speech and Debate



Objectives


The importance of communication skills to students cannot be overstated. Effective communication skills will not just help our children participate in a crowded classroom, but will enable them to stand out in a crowd.

Our goals are to help our children:

  • Speak concisely and precisely, with confidence and clarity.
  • Develop and deliver informative speeches, and connect with audience.
  • Embrace disagreement and arguments of opposite views.
  • Develop critical thinking.
  • Develop teamwork & leadership skills.

Approach

We have developed our year long program based on Middle-School & High School Public Speaking & Debate concepts

Students & Parent Coaches meet once every week for an hour to enrich students' 
presentation and communication skills with Public Speaking & Debate sessions. Industry leaders and guest speakers will provide real-world examples.

Typical class schedule for this program may include: 

  • 15 mins: Introducing Public Speaking & Debate topics
  • 30 mins: Practicing Public Speaking & Debate
  • 10 mins: Review
  • 5 mins: Discuss next topic
