4th/5th Grade Speech and Debate
Session C: July 8-12
This camp is for any 4th or 5th grade student looking to learn the art of speech and debate. Students will learn and sharpen the foundational elements of speech and debate. Students will explore multiple speech and debate events. These include: Lincoln-Douglas debate, Oxford style debate, Parliamentary debate, Congressional Debate and Impromptu Speaking. The curriculum is designed to teach students a great deal of material while making sure students have fun and develop an intrinsic joy for speech and debate. Students will also learn foundational philosophy, elements of current events, methods for becoming stronger and more confident public speakers, logical reasoning, and how to engage in civil discourse.
Games and fun!: Summer should be fun. We intend to learn a lot, but the summer session will also have plenty of time for fun debate related games. We want kids to want to be there and will help cultivate that with occasional games to keep things light but informative.
