The summer of 2020 has shown that when children participate in interactive Zoom classes in the Arts it energizes and excites them for online learning, setting them up for academic success! It may seem counter intuitive, but when children are given the chance to participate in fun and uplifting activities through Zoom, it re-energizes them and opens their minds up to learning the important lessons and topics of school on a similar platform and actually counters Zoom Fatigue. Fun Saturday Zoom classes are the perfect way to help your child recharge each week with an activity that they are passionate about and that helps them to connect with others and express themselves in a healthy and creative way.

At this time when we cannot socialize face to face, it becomes more important than ever to create special opportunities for children to feel normal, to do things that help make them feel happy, provide them with healthy outlets, and to socialize online with other children in a safe, well-structured educational environment. PAW is committed to making your child’s Saturday fun, memorable and special through our diverse catalogue of Arts workshops on Zoom!

Should children be allowed to have cell phones in schools?  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.

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!

What if teenagers across the nation were taught to be active changemakers who know how to use their voices to make a difference? Our After School Debate Sports & Forensics class is an in-depth firsthand experience that equips students to share their perspectives and debate with confidence, empathy, respect, and conviction. Students have the unique opportunity to explore and utilize some of the most popular debate styles among high school and college debate programs and competitions including International Public Debate Association (IPDA), National Parliamentary Debate Association (NPDA), and British Parliamentary debate. Through regular class warm-ups, students learn the importance of proper diction, enunciation, breathing,

posture,stance, poise, and body language. During their in-class debates, students learn to debate under common competition scoring categories including delivery, courtesy, appropriate tone, organization, logic, support, cross examination, and refutation. They learn how to structure arguments, find credible & quality evidence, use tone & inflection to emphasize a point, roadmap their arguments, ask compelling cross examination questions, argue any side of an issue, and understand & anticipate opposing arguments when assigned a position. By learning how to debate, students are learning and practicing valuable lifelong academic and personal skills, including active listening, collaboration, persuasive writing, public speaking, leadership, critical thinking, and civic mindedness. Note: This class is intended as a primer for a Competitive Debate Program and draws lessons from 3 styles of competitive debate. Students will not be participating in actual scored competitions.

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!
