I am in Grade 10 at Kings View Academy, I have been debating competitively for five years and have been successful on both the national and international levels. During my time debating, I have developed critical thinking and analysis skills, improved my presentation skills and made many friends.
I have partnered with the Halifax Central Library to offer a free workshop, Introduction to Debating.
Debating teaches valuable skills:
- Learn how to create and structure arguments
- Improve research skills
- Learn how to disagree with views you may not agree with
- Helps with interviewing skills and presentations
- Builds confidence
This 1.5 hour workshop explains the concept of debating and you may even get to practice.
