Debate Boot Camp (Advanced) grades 7-8 only

Debate Boot Camp (Advanced) grades 7-8 only

The advanced session of Debate Boot Camp is open to any students who have previously taken Introduction to Public Speaking and Argumentation or attended Debate Boot Camp. Students will explore more advanced argumentation and advocacy events by examining each of the four styles of debate Harker participates in: Lincoln Douglas, Policy Debate, Congressional Debate and Public Forum. Students will learn how to structure and argue different cases as well as learn how to research evidence to support those cases. They will do more exploration of current events as well as framing arguments in a policymaker context. The class will culminate with a mini-debate and speech performance that parents and families can attend. This class allows students to try out different performance opportunities that many middle school and high school speech and debate programs offer. Advanced Debate Boot Camp is strongly recommended for students who are entering Debate 1 at the middle school or who are interested in participating on the competitive team. Prerequisites: Completed at least one semester of Beginning Debate, Introduction to Public Speaking and Argumentation or equivalent course.
