High school debate offers students the opportunity to compete in a platform that develops a student’s advocacy skills, public speaking ability, and fosters critical thinking on socially significant topics. Students who attend the Prosper Debate Camp will focus on two distinct forms of debate which will be taught, under the guidance of the debate coach and by Prosper High School debaters:
Public Forum: This event is one of the more popular forms of high school debate because it's relatively easy to learn. Students learn to compete as a team arguing for either the PRO or CON side of a current event topic while rebutting and refuting the arguments made by the opposing team.
Lincoln-Douglas Debate: This event is ideal for student who like to think outside of the box. Lincoln Douglas debate is a one-on-one debate in which students’ debate competing value positions in relation to various contemporary moral issues. Campers can expect to learn how important ideas can frame our understanding of issues, as well as develop a deeper understanding of social justice. Who: For rising 6th - 9th graders
When: July 9- July 11, 2018 8 am to 4 pm
Where: Prosper High School NOTE: Campers are expected to bring their own bag lunch.
