Welcome to Speech & Debate I/II
The Speech and Debate class provides students with an opportunity to develop skills in research, critical thinking, organization, persuasion, and communication. We must set aside personal bias and previous knowledge to objectively debate various sides of an issue and understand the complexities of the world in order to develop solutions that are workable and solve inherent problems. These skills are invaluable for college, career, and citizenship.
In my classes, I utilize Canvas to post what we do in class each day as well as post copies of the assignments given that day. This means if you are absent from class you will need to check Canvas to see what you need to complete. I do my best to have Canvas updated each day, I typically will have this done no later than the end of the school day, so please be patient.
You can access the Scholar Academy Canvas page here.
In our class, we will be doing a lot of reading and writing, be prepared! Make sure you bring with you to class something to write with and something to take notes on. It is not my responsibility to provide these for you.
If you would like to donate supplies to our classroom, I would greatly appreciate them.
College Ruled Paper
Dry Erase Markers(Crayola or Expo are preferred)
I also have an Amazon Classroom list created of classroom supplies as well as other useful supplies or tools that could be used in the classroom. That list can be found here.
