 Speech and Debate (11/01)

Attention ALL Students!  Do you like to argue? Do you have what it takes to learn about competitive speaking and debate has a number of both short and long term benefits which include:

1 Developing courage

It takes courage (at least at first) to stand up on the stage and talk, even when you may feel like running away and hiding. By facing your demons you can learn to face and overcome even more situations, becoming a more courageous person in the process.

2 Building confidence

There is no doubt that you need confidence to speak on a public stage and also that speaking on a public stage can help you become more confident. Just as being courageous once makes you more courageous at other times, so also does acting in a confident way makes you generally a more confident person.

3 Learning to argue

When you present, you often need to put forward a coherent argument. In the preparation that you have to do, in the practice and on the actual stage of public speaking, you will learn much about the art of argument, especially if you get to engage with your audience in some form of question and answer.

 And 4,  Learning to persuade

Beyond and within argument, you will have plenty of opportunity to utilize many of the methods that practice the subtle arts and science of persuasion.

If you are interested in joining an ACADEMIC TEAM here at Independence, please attend Thursday’s meeting in R6 at 2:45 in Ms. Sheets’ room.  Everyone’s welcome…
