We have continued to meet regularly on Thursday from 6-7:30 p.m. via Zoom videoconferencing. Several students have written and updated/improved/revised their informative/persuasive speeches and shared their work with classmates and instructors. Ms. Shudak and I have been impressed with their continued dedication to learning.
We will meet four more times: April 30, May 7, May 14, and May 21. During the last couple class meetings, we expect to have some practice debates on the topic we would have been debating at competitions this year if schools had not needed to cancel: "Resolved: All U.S. Public Universities should be Tuition-Free for All Students."
Also, Guided by Kids will reach out for some fundraising for next year when we participate in Giving Tuesday Now on Tuesday, May 5. Next year we should be able to return to more regular tournament competition, so we need to do at least some fundraising to be in decent shape for 2021!
