106 N. Joshua’s Way
Thursday, May 16, 2013, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The informational meeting is free of charge; bring an interested homeschooled friend (ages 12 through 18)! Register by the morning of Monday, May 13.
The National Christian Forensics and Communications Association (NCFCA) believes that “formal speech and debate can provide a means for homeschooled students to learn and exercise analytical and oratorical skills, addressing life issues from a biblical world view in a manner that glorifies God.” Region 9 provides tournaments and training opportunities for students from nearby states to develop their skills in an atmosphere of mutual friendship and accountability.
Colonial Poetics and Rhetoric Club of Yorktown will open training and foundations classes for its second season in August. They will train newcomers in the skills and disciplines of debate and speech events through a weeklong introductory camp in mid-August, weekly club meetings, monthly intensive Saturday events, and regional novice and practice tournaments. Veteran competitors will build speaking and leadership skills–including increasing their repertoire of selections and becoming more polished. Debate competitors will build research and analysis skills, and improve logic and argumentation.
