This is the first course in our ongoing Debate Class Series, is a mock legislative session. Students are assigned to debate pre‐assigned "bills" or "resolutions." Previous topics have included video games, school uniforms, cell phones, juvenile justice, presidential pardon power, fast food and wild mustang roundups.

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.
