Debate goes beyond preparing students for the minimum requirements of The EOC exams with a goal of each student being better prepared for “Advanced Placement” courses and attaining choice college scholarships. Overall, students become better educated and more involved citizens of our society as they compete in this academic arena.
Legacy Debate enhances the academic curriculum in at least three ways:
First, students learn to discuss, research, and study important issues like military intervention, cultural values, international politics, and human rights policies. You will get to debate both government policies and philosophical values.
Second, students can engage in more stimulating discussions in every-day classes they take because they have had real world practice researching, studying, and communicating about these important issues.
Third, students turn in better research and analysis for papers because they have practiced researching and organizing their work into the most effective manner possible in a cooperative learning environment.
