PHS Speech & Debate Summer Camp Session This camp is intended for students entering 6th - 9th grade in Fall 2019.
Parents, do you see these characteristics in your child?
If so, they might have what it takes for speech and debate! High school speech & 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.
Under the guidance of the Prosper High School speech & debate coach and varsity debaters, students who attend the Prosper Speech & Debate Camp will focus on one of two forms of debate which will be taught:
Public Forum Debate: This event is one of the more popular forms of high school debate because it is 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 bythe 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.
Students will also learn about other forms of Speech & Debate competition including congressional debate, extemporaneous speaking, oral interpretation, and policy debate. Summer 2019 Camp Details:
