Lessons taught will also include organizing thoughts in a cohesive speech, turning “loose” thoughts into compelling rhetorical arguments, and becoming comfortable with the activity of speaking in front of people.
Students will get hands-on experience debating with several fun debates on generally-understood subjects toward the end of the camp. Past camps have had debate subjects that ranged from making Pokemon Go and Fidget Spinners illegal to lowering the driving age for highschoolers, and we’ll have more fun subjects this time too!
There are several instructors to maximize the opportunities that students have to interact with experienced debaters and receive feedback to increase their own skill set. Camp instructors understand that public speaking is a scary subject for many students (and even many parents) because we were all in your shoes just a few years ago. We design our camps with that in mind. We provide helpful and constructive feedback, analyzing students strengths and weaknesses, and providing concrete ways that they can develop their skills.
