This course introduces elementary students to parliamentary debate.

Debate topics are both challenging and directly relevant to students. The rule structure is less rigid than standard parliamentary debate rules.

Group exercises develop public speaking, critical reasoning, argument construction, rebuttal, and evidence presentation skills.
