Teachers - 

  • Teaching - 
    • Demand History – This is a new class for 2016-2017. I estimate that we will need 1 session of Book 2.
    • For each session you take, it is a once weekly, 45 minute to one-hour class session plus a 15- minute pre-class sign in to greet students and set up.
    • Schedule – This is a full year, 34 week class.
    • Preparation - Each week has a slide set ready for you. Teaching plans come directly from the Teacher manual. Preparation for class should be minimal- reading through the lesson and glancing through the slides.


Graders - 

  • Grading Type -  Students are asked to submit their weekly rewrites. Graders will choose ONE of those sentences to check for errors- removing 1 point for each mistake. Other optional quizzes are graded automatically.
  • Need - Each teacher may be able to handle the grading for their own students, but having an extra grader would be helpful. I estimate one or two hours of grading a week per class. Teacher manual is needed for grading.

Description:

† Contains distinctly Christian content

Competitive Speech & Debate is a 20-week course designed to quickly take novice public speakers through the basics of speech-craft and prepare them for effective competitive debating. Students who complete this course will be well prepared to join speech and debate tournaments in their area, or simply improve their ability to effectively present and defend their ideas.

This will be a rigorous high school level course and will require approximately one hour each weekday out of class for research and preparation.

Requirements:

No text is needed, but students must have a means to share their speech and participate in debate. Some performances will be live in the online classroom and others the student will provide a recording link for instructor and peer review. All students must have a webcam, headset with microphone (quality of audio will play a part in scoring), and access to YouTube, Vimeo, or a file hosting account (Drop Box, Google Drive, One Drive, etc.) to post their own speech recordings.

To accommodate families that have blocked YouTube on their student's computers, our example presentations are provided through ViewPure. Please white list this website. Students that use YouTube to host their performances will be instructed how to adjust their video sharing settings to viewable but unlisted and how to use ViewPure to get a link classmates can view to put in to peer reviewed activities.
