KCKCC Free High School Debate Workshop

Recommended Posts

I am pleased to announce that the 4th annual KCKCC Free High School Debate Workshop will take place from August 2nd-August 6th on the campus of Kansas City Kansas Community College.

 

This workshop is made possible by the generous funding and support from the KCKCC Division of Humanities and Fine Arts, the College Provost, the College Vice-President for Financial Services, the College President and the Board of Trustees.

 

The college's commitment to and belief in supporting the endeavors of High School students continues to allow us to provide opportunities such as this to the High School community.

 

As in the past, the workshop will integrate lectures on the 2010-2011 HS Topic, Fundamentals of argument construction and refutation, Theory and Practice, and opportunity for practice debates on the topic. Get a jump start on your friends and competitors by being well-versed and well-rehearsed on the topic before the season even begins.

 

We have had attendance from students throughout Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma in the past. We expect a good turnout once again. Please register early so we have an idea of our size and space needs.

 

We anticipate the delivery of guest lectures from some of debate's best minds, practitioners, and coaches. Watch for updates on this website as they become available.

 

If you have any questions, please email me at delliott@kckcc.edu

 

We look forward to hosting you in August!

The workshop will begin at 9am on Monday morning. We will be meeting in room 2105 of the Humanities Bldg at KCKCC. I will have a more complete schedule posted later today. We will run from 9-4 each day with a lunch break.

 

If you think you are attending or are bringing people, please let me know. We have some materials we need to copy prior to beginning on Monday and would like to have a rough estimate of how much we need to do.

 

I also want to finalize some lectures with some visiting lecturers, so knowing the number and experience level would be helpful.

 

Please email me at delliott@kckcc.edu

 

thanks,

chief
