Speech and Debate

The objective of this program is to prepare participants for the myriad situations that require formal and informal presentations. Participants will learn how to craft and present arguments, opinions and ideas. They will learn the fundamentals of rhetoric and will practice informing, persuading and motivating an audience in a variety of ways. The grading rubric was adapted with the permission of Neil Mercer, the Director of research and Head of Faculty at The University of Cambridge.

Parliamentary Debate
Students will learn to effectively present and defend a persuasive argument using the ARESR method developed by the English Speaking Union. Students will learn to outline, draft, develop and deliver effective arguments and counter arguments. They will learn to refute using the four steps of effective refutation. They will explore what is efficient-and inefficient-in arguments (and counter arguments) and the different methods that popular orators have used throughout the years to sway opinion. We will also address political framing techniques, speaker-audience and speaker-topic commonality, persuasive rhetoric, fallacies in reasoning, persuasive use of evidence and stylistic devices.

Mock Trial
Mock trial is a hands on simulation of the American judicial system. The goal is to help participants acquire a working knowledge of our judicial system, develop analytical abilities and communication skills, display leadership in a court of law, and gain an understanding of their obligations and responsibilities as participating members of our society. Materials for this course are provided by The American Bar Association and The Constitutional Rights Foundation.
