Students Clash in Debate
Thursday December 8 at 6:30 pm at Ashland Brethren in Christ Church
Minds and voices will come to a head on Thursday, clashing in a battle of opinions and eloquence.
For the last 10 weeks seven homeschool children have been learning the techniques of public speaking. Under the tutelage of Matt Timmons, a pastor and homeschool father, the class has discussed and presented various speeches, including informative, persuasive and emotive speeches.
All their training will now be put on open display as they enter into a public debate. Students have been paired off with an opponent and given a topic to research. They will attempt put their opponent to shame by winning their audience with the techniques discussed in class.
Timmons said that the class has done exceptionally well, demonstrating radical improvement with each passing speech. "This debate should be interesting," said Timmons. "Due to the odd number of students, I have to debate one of them. As well, there are some great personalities here. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the speeches get a little spirited."
