Debate Club gathers students from grades 6 to 9 to learn more about the rules and styles of debating.
Through Debate Club, we aim to enhance the students’ critical thinking skills. This is achieved by choosing different topics which are of interest to their age; therefore, encouraging them to challenge each other with questions and opinions.
For this phase of the project, the Debate Club Coordinator is our Alumni, Erblin Hoxha, who has been working with different debate teams for 10 years. Mr. Hoxha has experience in teaching the methods of debating to high school students; thus, he volunteered his time to modify these lectures for middle school students. The lectures include lessons on critical thinking skills, debating skills, researching, different forms of debating etc.
