Storm Debate Team

Practice starts on Friday September 15, 2023. New and interested debaters are welcome. No experience is required to join the debate team. Meetings will be at PRMS (location TBD).

The focus of the debate team is:

  • Learn to break big ideas into small pieces (systems thinking)
  • Learn how to disagree thoughtfully and how to apply critical thinking skills
  • Learn to focus on your main point when building a case or argument (case line)
  • Learn to speak clearly and how to be organized in your speaking
  • Develop your confidence as a public speaker

Practice information:

  • The regular season is from September 12, 2023 to January 23, 2024.
  • The extended season is from January 30, 2024 to March 12, 2024. (This is when we focus on a mock trial and on parliamentary debate for the model parliament.)
  • We meet every Friday at PRMS after school from 3:20 PM to 4:30 PM.
