Debate is a class in which students learn formats for debate, interpreting resolutions, developing affirmative and negative case constructions, cross-examinations, and evaluating arguments.  Amala Chacko, explains, “In all honesty, debate has helped me grow so much. Before I started debate, my vocabulary was horrid, and I didn’t have the ability to think on my feet. I hardly knew anything that was happening in the world, and couldn’t have cared less. Then, debate came into the picture and I have become more eloquent, intelligent, and have started really understanding world events and issues. The class helped me get over my stage fright and also gave me a chance to meet many people who were also interested in political and current events. I recommend this class for anyone who has a desire to voice their opinions and broaden their views on issues that our world currently faces.”
