Led by Foothill’s own Mr. Young, this class is a great start to debate. Students will learn how to research topics, the rules of the game and how to speak in public. This is a perfect class for those interested in joing the competition team next year. This class will feature assignments and Zoom meetings. Students will learn WHY good research matters and why we should care about the world around us in a way that makes us think about quality sources (Buzzfeed vs. the Wall Street Journal, for example) instead of just Google. They will learn how to spot "fake news" and how to talk about controversial topics with confidence, facts and logic. They will learn to use a debate strategy called ARESR -- Assertion, Reasoning, Evidence, Significance, Result. The class will involve games, vision models, and more. Confidence starts here!
