Debate and Speech Club: Learn Argumentation and Public Speaking
Public Speaking & Debate - Advanced
In this advanced level ongoing class, learners will improve their public speaking skills through impromptu speech writing and class debate. This class is for learners with debate experience.
US Grade 5 - 7
In this advanced debate class, learners will be able to consistently practice their public speaking and debate skills in the Public Forum format. Learners will be given a topic to research prior to class. They should not prepare for a specific side as that will be assigned at the start of class. Learners will be randomly assigned a side and a team, then given time in a breakout room to prepare for the debate. Each learner will have at least one speaker role (opening, cross-examination,...
To build upon earlier debate learning by: - Showing an ability to come up with a 4 minute debate speech with limited preparation. - Ask and answer questions in a crossfire setting that help to set up arguments against your opponent and defend your own arguments. - Construct an argument that includes a claim, warrants, and impacts. - Construct arguments that refute your opponents arguments by using the “ICE” Method Identify the argument you are refuting. Critique the argument (Explain what is wrong with the argument) Evaluate why your argument is preferable to your opponents. Incorporate feedback from weekly classes to improve over time.
Learners are expected to research the topic in advance. This allows them more time to prepare as a team instead of having to use that time to gain an understanding of the topic.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
