Community Assisted Debate

This program serves as a laboratory for new and creative curricula (DAC, critical thinking, critical pedagogy, life skills, etc.) that advance the understanding and use of debate education among various populations and demographics. University debate students provide rigorous instruction in critical thinking, critical writing, oral communication, and conflict resolution in multiple academic settings for socio-economically challenged students. This time spent together helps students develop a stronger connection and identity to their school’s debate team and the greater Atlanta Urban Debate League community.
