Presidential Debates – Mondays | Think Critically, Debate with Civility
The first presidential debate was anything but a model of proper debating. What went wrong, and how can we do better? In this program, students will learn from a Harvard Law graduate about logical fallacies and critical reasoning by breaking down the debates and reviewing election responses.
This program will be non-partisan – the focus is on the candidates’ rhetoric rather than their policies or platforms.
Sessions will be from 3:00 PM Pacific/6:00 PM Eastern – 4:00 PM Pacific/7:00 PM Eastern on these Mondays: 10/26, 11/2, 11/9, 11/16, 11/23.
Interview Workshop – Tuesdays | Answer Confidently
Interviews are challenging. They push us out of our comfort zone and stretch our ability to think on our feet. But interviews are also essential – schools, jobs, scholarships, and more hinge on our ability to interview well.
Our instructors, who have mastered the art of the interview, are here to help your student master it too.
Sessions will be from 3:15 PM Pacific/6:15 PM Eastern-4:15 PM Pacific/7:15 PM Eastern on these Tuesdays: 10/27, 11/3, 11/10, 11/17, 11/24.
Extemporaneous Speaking – Wednesdays | Research Effectively, Present Efficiently
The ability to think critically and present effectively about current events is more important than ever. Extemporaneous speaking is a limited preparation speech about current events.
In this program, our instructors will train students to research well, evaluate the credibility of a source, and analyze and organize information into a speech.
Our Extemp workshop is led by instructors who competed on a national level in extemporaneous speaking, and will meet from 4:30 PM Pacific/7:30 PM Eastern-5:30 PM Pacific/8:30 PM Eastern on these Wednesdays: 10/21, 10/28, 11/4, 11/11, 11/18.
