Congress/ExtempJan 06, 2021
This class will go in depth with both congress debate and extemporaneous speaking. In congress, students pretend to be senators and will advocate for and against bills. They will learn about working together with others, analyze real public policy, researching, speaking, and professionalism. In extemporaneous speaking, students will have a limited amount of time to prepare a speech answering a question about national or international current events, politics, or relations. This helps students to learn critical thinking, quick research, and how to answer questions using evidence and logic.
When taking this class, students will get the opportunity to participate in in-class and external competitions.
