I'm a strong believer in the educational value and sheer fun of learning debate for primary school students. Most recently, I spent last summer as an administrator and head coach at the Mi Edu Debate Camp in Shanghai, China, where I helped design and deliver a Public Forum Debate curriculum to students between the ages of 9-15.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
