Debate and critical thinking exercise about space exploration.

Class experience

The goals of this class are: 
1. Critical thinking
      - It's important to engage students in areas that they like but also can help hone their critical thinking skills by constructing arguments and having to respond to their fellow classmates.
2. Argumentation building
      - building arguments is foundational for all areas of our lives and learning the steps of how arguments are formed and then practicing those steps is paramount to mastering them. 
3. Listening skills 
      - A large part of the discourse is having to listen and comprehend what others around you are saying and not just waiting to speak next. This debate helps students to focus on listening to respond not just waiting to talk.
Hi, Y'all! 

I have been teaching at Clemson University since 2012 where I am the Director of Debate and instructor. I start the Clemson Debate Society from scratch and over the years it has grown into one of the most well-respected programs in the country. We travel all of the United States and the world for competitions and training. I put everything I have into my students both in the classroom and on my debate and I love being able to watch students grow, learn, and challenge themselves through critical thinking. 

Throughout the years I have helped to run some of the largest debate tournaments in the United States and the World to help promote critical thinking, argumentation building, and public speaking. I was recently the first woman to ever host the United States University Debating Championship which is the largest debating competition in the country.  

Debate training camps I have lead or been involved in: 
International Debate Academy in Slovenia:  2013-2018
Beihang Debate Academy in China: 2015-2018
North American Debate Academy: 2013-2017
