Debate Workshop - Derwent

Debate Workshop - Derwent

Debate is a very effective means of developing logical thinking and applying it to life.  Learn how to organize thoughts and present them in ways that are clear and convincing.

The WISDOM Debate Workshop will demonstrate differences between logical and emotional thinking and illustrate the common, but illogical, tactics of people who try to influence others.  Students will learn the structure of formal debate and apply their new skills to providing the best possible argument.

Debate provides eminently useful lifetime skills and is the foundation of decision-making in courts of law, legislation, and forums for social change.  Prepare to make a difference!
