 FREE Speech & Debate class for 6-8grade students with Young Genius Educational Center.

We starting a new Speech & Debate course for beginners and students who have experience to prepare them to compete in Congressional Debate at Stanford Speech & Debate Tournament, February 11-13, 2012. Link for the tournament: http://snfi.org/invitational

The clear intent of our Speech & program is to prepare Middle and High School students to compete in HIGH and Middle School tournaments held throughout the Bay Area and California.
Our classes are designed to teach students to debate and give speeches in the all formats used in California.

During this course students will learn public speaking, cross examination, basic research, and critical thinking in order to construct a set of arguments to defend their position.

After this course students will improve their ability to:

Analyze debatable issues.
Research topics.
Organize ideas.
Make thoughtful, engaging, and clear presentations.
Listen actively and take thorough notes.
Refute arguments of their opponents.
Students learn team building as they discover the difference between simply arguing and the rules and procedures of debate.

Debate enhances reading comprehension, increases GPA, and looks excellent on high school and college applications. Students with debate training also score higher on standardized tests.
