Halsey is happy to announce to the continuation of the Halsey Competitive Debate Team. Our practices and competitions will all be virtual this year. We have virtual practices once a week and on competition weeks we will try and hold multiple practices for the students virtually. It is a great way to teach many important skills in research and argumentative thinking. Due to the number of students allowed to participate in the Debate league we will hold a tryout next week, Wednesday November 3rd from 4:30 to 6:30pm from zoom. The topic will be given to the students this Thursday during a short meeting. Students will also be provided with a link to the permission slip, that will need to be filled out November 2nd the day before the tryout. We will hold a short meeting virtually on Thursday October 28th at 4:30 pm using the link provided. Here we will provide more information to the students about the tryout and the link for the permission slip. They will also receive the topic and how the debate will be formatted.
