In the Middle School Debate Competition students form two person teams to debate both sides of a current topic. They research in order to develop both negative and affirmative arguments, learn to cross examine their opposition, and listen attentively in order to rebut their opponent’s arguments. They are scored in several areas, including delivery and analysis. This program is fantastic for public speaking skills, analyzing issues and using evidence to support arguments.
