Westbriar Elementary School PTA
Grades 4-6Offered by Fairfax Collegiate. Students learn how to craft persuasive arguments and rebuttals while building their skills in public speaking. These skills are put to use each week with a full-length debate in which each student has a role. During debates, students collaborate to conduct research and create speeches with strong arguments supported by evidence. Debate topics are drawn from student interest as well as domestic and world issues. Each class ends with a detailed debrief from the instructor of both individual and team performance before a winner is declared. This is a 90-minute class.
