Debate is an art that analyzes two contradicting points and deliberating which one made the best point through analyzing and practicing rhetorical methods such as emotional appeal, logic, and factual evidence. Taking Debate can be an extremely beneficial to a student as it reduces stage fright and increases writing ability.

Debate develops skills and knowledge that will help the debater become an elite and college-ready student, and will also help them to develop a civic and political identity. Students will develop a sense of ownership of the world and a sense of empowerment, as they will know specific global and domestic issues, and the ways in which the government can solve our generation’s problems.
