    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The practice of debate/persuasion is used daily, often unconsciously. The skill of engaging with others about personal beliefs,( value, fact or policy), is so important and this class taught me how to effectively lay out a claim, advocate for what I believe and oppose what I do not. When done well, you can avoid insults and breakdown in communication. Disagreements are a part of life and the ability to hear others and be heard is essential for work and home. A good spirited debate can be fun and educational.

    Course highlights:

    A disagreement does not have to be a conflict. A simple fact proposition is much easier to challenge while a value proposition is the hardest. Example: Fact, "That car is blue" could be challenged that it is actually turquoise. No big deal...but a value is something held more strongly and can involve thoughts on touchier issues such as abortion, or religious belief. Each of the 3 propositions have stock issues and, for me, this was the more abstract material covered. The course involved team debates that led to a final individual presentation of a policy proposition. I chose to advocate for changes in American Educational policies and through research of peer review articles, internet pages and books offered several steps I feel could improve the quality of education in America. I had to understand how to cite sources while presenting and also complete a works cited page. These skills along with introduction to APA will be very useful to me in future classes. Remember, my last English course was over 25 years ago.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is for everyone, it is not a full out Debate class, not is it meant to prepare one for Law School. Have fun with it, you will probably surprise yourself on how effectively you can make a claim, offer rebuttal and compose opening and closing arguments. Our instructor was very flexible on topics and by choosing things that interested me the work was easier. If it is an offered elective, take it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoy the course, and the professor is excellent. She really works with you and if someone has issues with public speaking, she helps them. She also gives great speech advice for later in life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to speak without freaking out, how to do a proper debate and proper etiquette during both speech and debate which will come in handy later in life.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as everyone does their part, it is very easy to pass the class, however, if the group does not communicate with each other, it becomes difficult to present on presentation day.
