About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, November 19, 2016.

Ages 11 - 15

Congressional Debate, commonly known as CD, is a simulation of the U.S. legislative process in the Senate and the House. In this class, the basics of Congressional Debate as well as speech writing will be covered. Class will focus on skills such as research, persuasive speaking, critical thinking, accurate and extensive note taking, and cross examination skills. CD is great way to introduce your child to public speaking. This class will be run by WW-P High School North students, Fariha Tamboli and Rafeea Tamboli, who are well-versed in not only CD but also other forms of debate such as MUN, Model Congress, Moot Court and Public Forum. Program will be overseen by instructor, Shikha Rastogi. New skills and material will be taught each week.


Open to Plainsboro and West Windsor children as well as Plainsboro based business employees' children. Registering ineligible participants will result in removal from the program and no refund.
