Elementary Public Forum Debate

The Elementary Public Forum Debate class is one of the best ways a student can prepare for middle school competition.  Here, students write and edit cases, prepare briefs, scrimmage, and master all the basics of public forum debate while still in elementary school.  The elementary tournaments will soon include public forum as an event, providing students in this class a chance to compete against debaters from other schools.  The round structure, rules, and strategies of public forum are the same in this class as they are in middle and high school competitions, although the resolutions address less complex subject matter.  This course employs the most rigorous and sophisticated curriculum available to elementary age students, and should be taken following a survey class, or concurrently with a survey class.
