Debate (Sam)

How you see life and what you believe is always something to think about often. Some of it can lead to some of the biggest discussions that you could ever imagine. On the biggest stage, you will see two people lay it all out while vying to be the mayor of a large city or president of a country. For us, it’s those simple conversations that take place during downtime and lunch. There’s a science to being a great debater and listener. In this class, we will explore the many layers of quality debating and expand our ability to do so in a respectful, but engaging manner.

This class will take some deep thinking, courage, risk-taking, and a deep ability to listen while focusing our brain energy to shape our ways of thinking critically.
