Students become comfortable taking initiative and advocating and defending courses of action on important issues in public forums.
Instructors help each student select a local or national issue of personal concern and devise a proposal to address the issue. Students then present their solutions and respond to the audience’s objections, concerns, and suggestions.
This exercise is repeated the second week with students incorporating their experiences from the first week.
