Argumentation & Debate
In this speech-based class, students learn and evaluate the types of arguments and how to build them using credible evidence. Using claims, propositions, credible evidence and reasoning, students examine how to improve their arguments. Recognizing opposing viewpoints and considering how to create refutations are also examined. In this primarily performance-based course, students professionally debate each other using a variety of topics and contexts.
