Preach the Speech, Create the Debate


Jimin K., Staff Writer

This year, Cope Middle School started a speech and debate club. The club’s adviser is Mr. Cartmill in room H-23. Speech and debate is for improving communication skills. The club engages students in challenging, competitive events that involves hard-work and dedication. Speech involves one, two, or a group of students to create a presentation that is judged against a similar presentation by others in a round of competition. Debate involves an individual or a team of debaters working to convince the judge that their side of the argument is valid.
