All programs include 8 class sessions 1x/week for 60 minutes with supplemental debate activities. The program concludes with an interscholastic debate tournament to give students the opportunity to demonstrate their new skills in full debates.



How it works

Our unique instructional model maximizes remote learning tools. Every program utilizes both synchronous (together) learning and asynchronous (independent) learning. Students watch short videos (5-10 minutes) between classes and complete practice application based assignments, which they submit through our Learning Management System and receive feedback.

Moving the “lectures” to independent time allows students to watch the videos when it fits into their schedule, while allowing the “in person” time to focus on demonstration, practice, and group learning. Each 60-minute class will review the material from that week’s videos, provide students an opportunity to discuss in small groups, and engage students in a debate skill-building activity.

“I don't pretend to know everything; I just only speak on matters I know I'll win.”
