10:00 am – 11:30 am
The USA Debate Team will be showcasing the World Schools Debate format at The Reagan Library on January 5th, 2015. This format is a unique and dynamic style of debate, unlike any other practiced in the United States. This debate features a dynamic format combining the concepts of “prepared” topics with “impromptu” topics, encouraging debaters to focus on specified issues rather than debate theory or procedural arguments.
The USA Debate Team kicked off the 2014-2015 World Schools Debate season with a first, second, and third place finish at their first competition in New Orleans, LA. They have spent the remainder of the year traveling to tournaments in Slovenia, Prague, Old Parkland & the National Speech & Debate Tournament in Kansas City.
