Class Description and Goal:
This is an introductory class to public speaking and debate. The goal of this class is for all students to gain a basic understanding of the activity in a fun and positive environment. Though the class teaches both speech and debate, this class places a greater emphasis on speech than debate (75% Speech, 25% Debate) This class is designed assuming that the student has not taken any speech and debate classes before and will cover the basics of public speaking including, but not limited to:
☻ Body language, vocal variety, tone, and eye contact
☻ Speech writing, research, and memorization
☻ Basics of argumentation, cross examination, and case writing
☻ Listening and being a respectful audience member to others
☻ This weekly class is designed for students with little to no experience in speech and debate.
