2nd-5th. Our class entails three “tracks” that students can take: Speech, Oral Interpretation, and Debate. In Speech, competitors craft a persuasive and/or informative speech and then present it to our assigned instructors for the class. Dependent on the specific event these speeches are either written on the spot or carefully curated over the year. In the Oral Interpretation events, students take pieces of literature and poetry and present their interpretation of them in a 10-minute scene either by themselves or with a partner. In Debate, students work as a team to prove their side of an argument against another team.
