About This Activity

The objective of this program is to prepare participants for the myriad situations that require formal and informal presentations. Participants will learn to craft and present arguments and inform, persuade and motivate an audience in a variety of ways. Students will learn to effectively present and defend a persuasive argument using the MSPDP method developed by Kate Schuster and John Meney, Directors of the National MSPDP debate program. The grading rubric was adapted with the permission of Neil Mercer, the Director of research and Head of Faculty at The University of Cambridge. Registered students are encouraged to participate in and be prepared for tournaments throughout the season.
