Debate (Forensic) Club
Advisor: Ms. Orcutt
Google Classroom Code: fmuuis3
Schedule: Optional Practice on Tuesdays; Tournaments and Mandatory Meetings on Wednesdays (not every Wednesday)
Description: Important debates occur every day in all walks of life. Scientists and politicians, for example, debate solutions to our most serious problems. There is no doubt that good debates help us to better understand issues and to arrive at well-reasoned decisions. High school debates have set formats to create a fair and challenging contest for both sides. Debates are centered on a resolution (a controversial statement). In every debate the affirmative side speaks in favor of the resolution and the negative side speaks against it. A debate takes about an hour and consists of a series of speeches for and against the resolution.
Debate offers a wide range of benefits and appeals to many students. The best way to know if you’ll like it is to try it. Here are some benefits that current and former debaters often mention:
- Build Friendships—Debate is a great chance to meet people with common interests.
- Develop Self-Confidence—As debaters learn to defend their arguments and to persuade the audience, their confidence soars.
- Public Speaking—Public speaking is both highly feared by many people and highly valued by employers. Debate helps students to become comfortable and effective public speakers.
- Research Skills—Do you ever get frustrated and confused with a research assignment? You’ll learn to master the research process in debate.
- Note-taking & Listening Skills—Former debaters have a big advantage in college because they can quickly identify and record key information from lectures.
- Teamwork—Being part of a team is rewarding by itself. Through debate you can letter and represent Eastview High School in competition.
- Fun—The bottom line for most members of the debate team is that it’s fun. When you win your first debate, you’ll understand why!
