Stanford Invitational Tournament

Thanks for joining us this summer!  Please return to our website later this fall to see the dates of our 2021 programs.

2-Week Public Speaking + Introduction to Debate Experience

Our 2-Week Public Speaking + Introduction to Debate Experience is designed to be a student's first structured experience with public speaking, debate and formal argumentation - no prior experience is necessary.  Speech & debate is a very powerful activity which teaches students many skills which are in high demand in the contemporary world: public speaking, research skills, writing and logical thinking!

This program starts from the ground up with our 1-Week Public Speaking Introduction session, which is designed to be a student's first structured experience with public speaking.  In the second week, students continue into our 1-Week Introduction to Argumentation & Debate session to learn the bedrock theories and methods necessary to enter the world of competitive speech & debate, along with a brief introduction to the major standardized formats of competitive debate which are offered at high schools around the nation.
