With an emphasis on critical thinking, effective communication, research and teamwork, debate teaches skills that help students not only in school, but also throughout their lives. During this club, students will learn the foundation to construct arguments, develop the skills to advocate for a position and practice public speaking among their peers. Debate Club is an opportunity for students to learn how to express their arguments coherently and effectively in a safe forum open to all opinions. In addition, students will apply what they learn in a debate showcase with North Bethesda Middle School. Peri Kirkpatrick returns to teach this session after a year abroad! EAI is excited to work with Peri again. Peri is a senior at American University and has been teaching debate for several years to middle and high school students.

Activity Reports
EAI is aware there is a possibility that MCPS might determine it is necessary to close schools due to cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In case of closures, EAI will make every effort to reschedule missed club sessions and issue refunds if club commitments cannot be fulfilled. We will hold spring registration and spring clubs as scheduled, and we are exited to offer unique programming for students.
