Should children be allowed to have cell phones in school?  Should wearing helmets be mandatory when bike riding? Are video games beneficial or harmful? Which is better: the Harry Potter books or movies? These are just some of the issues and questions that kids ponder every day.  You have an opinion, but how do you prove that your opinion is the better opinion?  Working off of a foundation of voice, speech, and diction, we use debate and group discussions to teach students the art of organizing and articulating ideas, structuring and supporting arguments, listening and countering, and more, in a fun, safe, and non-competitive environment.  In this After School Debate Club via Zoom, kids will delve into a world of wordcraft where they will learn how to find their voice, empower themselves, and begin a life-long exploration of the majesty and wonder of words and ideas.

Our young debaters will focus on developing their skills under common debate categories including: Delivery, Courtesy, Appropriate Tone, Organization, Logic, Support, Cross Examination, and Refutation. They will learn how to structure arguments, find credible evidence, roadmap their points, ask cross examination questions, and consider opposing arguments. They will also walk away with skills in active listening, collaboration, public speaking, leadership, critical thinking, and civic mindedness.

We are partnering with Project LEAD to give students the tools to deal with peer-pressure, develop empathy, constructive dialogue, civic-mindedness, self-confidence, public speaking skills, build a powerful vocabulary, an appreciation for words and ideas and learn the finer points of language arts.  Words and ideas can change the world!

Is protecting wildlife important? Is access to clean water a right or a privilege? Is it more ethical to adopt or shop for your pet? Our After School Debate Team is an in-depth experience that equips kids to share their perspectives and debate with confidence, empathy, respect, and conviction. They will learn how to take the information they are absorbing, determine credibility, read between the lines, analyze it, and then learn how to form and express their own opinions. Students will go on a journey through a variety of age-appropriate and relevant debate topics while learning the International Public Debate Association (IPDA) format. With each new IPDA in-class debate, kids ages 11-15 will focus on developing their skills under the following

common debate categories: delivery, courtesy, appropriate tone, organization, logic, support, cross examination, and refutation. They learn how to structure arguments, find credible evidence, roadmap their points, ask cross examination questions, and consider opposing arguments. Within the Debate Team curriculum, students learn the basics of competitive debate and scoring by participating in in-class debates with their peers throughout the term. They will also walk away with skills in active listening, collaboration, persuasive writing, public speaking, leadership, critical thinking, and civic mindedness.

Parent Review of PAW’s Online Workshops Authored By: Alana, PAW Mom, Camper Age 10

My daughter Molly has LOVED debate — I think this experience has really given her a taste of ‘speech and debate’ for the future- maybe for middle school and high school! She’s really loved it and it’s been a great option for her. It’s made it difficult for her to choose between voice, acting with Kelly, and speech with Shaindi!

Parent Review of PAW’s Online Workshops Authored By: Kristine, PAW Mom, Camper Age 8

PAW’s workshops have been a savior for our family this summer. Not having in person workshops seemed like such a barrier to our daughter enjoying her summer break, but PAW was able to make Zoom workshops a success (and gave her parents some time to work). My daughter, Frankie participated in two weeks of workshops in June. She especially loved the Theater Games and Improv workshop with Ms. Kristy.

Ms. Kristy created interesting games and fun activities for the kids. Initially, Frankie was a little shy engaging with other kids through Zoom, but Ms. Kristy’s ice breakers and enthusiasm helped Frankie quickly warm up. By the end of the week, Frankie was eagerly waiting to log on and she loved being assigned an acting role in the mini scenes created by her fellow campers.  After the session was over, Frankie would play some of the games she learned with her family at home.  Thank you PAW for creating this memorable experience!
