Summer at New Roads

List of 4 items.

  • Debate! (Grades 5 - 8)

    Learn the fundamentals of public speaking and argumentation. Students will learn to state a case, with an assertion supported by reasoning and evidence, and to refute by systematically and specifically answering the opponent’s claim; they will practice the art of listening and note-taking and will learn how to research a debate topic so that they can argue either side. Debate builds vital leadership skills: critical thinking, active listening, research, knowledge of public issues, the ability to organize thoughts, and the power to persuade. The first two weeks of the course will be dedicated to learning the craft. In the third week, students will exercise what they learned and debate with their peers. Families are welcome to spectate debates!
