     Do you like to argue? Do you like to be right? If so, join the Debate Club and learn the techniques and skills to frame an argument about controversial issues in our society to win debates. As a academic club, we endeavor to teach children grades 6-8 how to properly debate an issue. Our fun, thought-provoking club will teach its members how to research and obtain reliable information, write speeches, and use their own critical thinking skills to debate certain dilemmas.
     
    In the Spring, Maple Point, Poquessing, and Sandburg Middle School participate in District Debates. District Debates is an optional tournament in which our school debates against the two other middle schools in our district over one debate topic selected by the coaches of the debate teams. 
     
    Meetings for debate club are weekly. Come out and join our convivial club today!
