  • CLASS DESCRIPTION

    Debate is a natural progression of both speech and logical thinking. In this course, we focus on the socratic method. This can be defined as “a form of a cooperative argumentative dialogue between two or more individuals, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and draw out more ideas and underlying presuppositions.” This course is offered in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Top performers may be invited to the competition group.

    SKILL ONE

    PUBLIC SPEAKING: Public speaking is the highest ranked fear among adults—75% according to the National Institutes of Mental Health. Even the best logicians will struggle to perform well if they can’t transfer their thoughts into speech. Therefore, verbal performance is a core skill in this class.

    SKILL TWO

    SOCRATIC METHOD: This is the way arguments will be examined and structured. The socratic method is the base of all debate forms, and has been the gold-standard for over 2,000 years.

    SKILL THREE

    THE FOUR P’s: These are the pillars of public speaking; planning, preparation, practice and performance. Students will learn about each step in the four p’s through practical application. They will be used to help transform socratic theory into debate-ready speech.
