This class is perfect for the student who hopes to compete in team policy debate. The course will cover the basics of debate: how to create arguments and respond to them logically. Students will learn to recognize logical fallacies, research both sides of an issue, and participate in class debates. Time will also be given to discussing the team policy competitive format and the Stoa rules. By the end of the course, students will be ready to compete in Stoa for the 2021-2022 season. Non-competitive students welcome, too!
