NOTE: DUE TO OUR SOLD-OUT JULY CAMP, WE HAVE DECIDED TO RUN A SECOND SESSION! THIS SESSION WILL BE EXACTLY THE SAME AS OUR JULY CAMP.
This intensive workshop deepens students’ argumentative skills through in-depth feedback, technique lectures, and multiple practice debates. The workshop focuses on the parliamentary debate format in preparation for competitions during the school year and is geared toward high school students and advanced middle school students.
This camp is taught by Joel Jacobs, the coach of the 2019 California State Champions in Parliamentary Debate and multiple tournament champions. The vision of the camp is to offer a top-tier debate camp that is affordable and accessible for the entire community. The camp is designed for beginning and experienced high school debaters, but may also be suitable for middle school students who are willing to work intensively on debate skills.
To give you an idea of what your child will experience this summer, we will be focusing on debate skills through plenty of practice debates, partner work, and personalized coaching. Topics will range from moral/philosophical issues, global issues, and silly topics. Students will receive video-recorded webinars to watch in their own time, in addition to independent practice activities and readings. This independent work will help us make the online experience as interactive as possible, spending our time doing practice debates and discussions about societal issues.
