Join us for a whiz-bang war of words! We will use a game-based approach to debating as a fun-filled way to engage in the art of persuasion. You will learn how to formulate an opinion, devise a convincing argument, and take multiple perspectives. Through games, improv activities, and role-playing, you will develop skills in empathy, self-confidence, rhetoric, and public speaking. Prepare to be entertained as you encounter thought-provoking scenarios and choose a side!
