Traditional Lincoln-Douglas Debate Class

6th-8th grade

Lincoln Douglas (LD) debate is one-on-one style debate where the topic changes every two months. Traditionally, LD is a value based debate.This class is for students who want the immersive experience of LD and still want to compete, but are not looking for the advanced level of competition and requirements of the progressive policy style LD class. This style of debate is more value/fact driven and focused on both evidence and logic as well as speaking skill. In this class students will learn how to research, deepen their knowledge base, understand multiple perspectives on issues, deal with ethical questions, and learn note-taking and reading skills.  

When taking this class, students will have the opportunity to compete in local competitions.
