CHS Speech & Debate
Instructor: Mrs. Michelle Watson
Room: A1125

What's it about?:
The Speech & Debate Team is an academic organization that requires the same dedication and self-discipline as the athletes in an athletic program. Students participate in extemporaneous speaking, original oratory, interpretation (duo, humorous, and dramatic). Along with individual debate, congressional debate, and public forum team debate. Students who participate in Speech & Debate learn to overcome and calm speaking anxieties, receive valuable training for college/future careers, increase their public communication skills, develop improved study habits/research skills, advance critical thinking and reasoning skills among so much more!
