Students will learn how to engage in a simple debate. They will improve their public speaking skills, as well as their listening skills. They will learn how to have respectful conversation with those of a differing opinion. They will learn point of view through arguing a topic differently than they feel.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Debates will be kept friendly and respectful. Religious or political topics will not be discussed. Disrespect of any kind will not be tolerated. All view points will be presented as opinions and not facts.
