We will have two guests--high school competitors from Millard West--doing their informative and persuasive speeches for us, as models to help us out in preparing our own speeches for middle school competition. We also know what our debate topic is for this year--Resolved: All U.S. Public Universities should be Tuition-Free for All Students. Lots to work on at class at the Kroc Center Thursday night, February 27, at 6 p.m.
Remember, we have no class meeting tomorrow night but return for classes at the Kroc Center on Thursday, February 27 at 6 p.m. For that class, you should bring all of your work done on your informative or persuasive speech--research, a starting outline, an introduction idea, etc. At that class, we should have a couple of high school competitors in speech who will demonstrate their own informative and persuasive speeches to help you see good models for the events. Additionall
All schools/clubs participating in middle school debate have voted and narrowed topics down to two choices: 1) Resolved: The Right to Bear Arms should be Limited 2) Resolved: All U.S. Public Universities should be Tuition-Free for All Students At class this Thursday, Feb. 13, at 6 p.m. at the Kroc Center, we will vote on which of those two topics we would like to debate this year. Also, please bring the research you have done on your persuasive or informative speech to class
I hoped to be able to post the final choices for the middle school debate topic we would vote on tonight in class, but not all votes from middle school programs are in from others who participate in debate. Tonight we should have at least one inspiration speech redo, and we will learn about ethos, pathos, and logos---Aristotle's three components of effective persuasion. Payton and I will also talk to everyone about the opportunity to attend a tournament for 9th and 10th grade
