Ingredients for a Debate Program
The WHSFA fosters formats of debate that emphasize accessibility and underlying pedagogy. Debate meets all Common Core State Standards in English language arts as well as National Council for the Social Studies C3 Framework standards. Debate can be:
- Implemented as an in-class unit that will engage students at the highest levels critical thinking.
- Easy to hold a “scrimmage” between two schools, to give your students an opportunity to engage their skills with peers.
- Participated in as an interscholastic academic sport.
