Longtime teacher of literature and speech and debate for both middle and high school students. I am proud to note that learners who have worked with my Spar Debate technique in many of my Outschool classes have gone on to win local/national speech competitions and continued successfully in both writing competitions and speech and debate teams.  I am also the founder and former coach of an award-winning Speech and Debate team that competed at local, state and national levels, long-time speech judge for local, regional, national speech events for NCFL and National Speech and Debate Association, former teacher of high school debate and rhetoric, art history, literature, and AP Language and Composition. 
숙제 제공
Each week learners will be provided with the Spar Question of the week and direction for transforming their response to those questions into a persuasive essay. These assignments are specially designed to maximize the connection between oral speech and written essay. As expected, I will provide quick, nuanced and complete response to each assignment a student completes.

제공되는 평가
I will be in Outschool email contact with all learners who provide homework assignments, and of course, parents are copied on my responses. I will provide all parents with an assessment of their learner at the close of the last session as well, noting strength and if, necessary, areas for improvement. If parents require a more formal assessment I am happy to provide that on request.

Pencil and paper always!
The superb essays we will be studying in this class are chosen for mature students who love  and can truly engage with great writing.   The essays we will discuss and debate deal with topics that include topics such as the purpose and validity of science, interpersonal relations, the goals and frustrations of the writer, class issues. Some essays, such as Once More to the Lake,  Souls on Ice, and The Death of the Moth, engage with ideas about mortality, but none of the essays considered in this class are of a graphic and violent nature. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me.
All essays for this course will be posted on the classroom page each week. Most essays are taken from  One Hundred Great Essays by Robert Diyanni (This book is NOT necessary for this class).
