In the first semester of Speech and Debate the students will learn the elements of writing and preparing speeches.  They will demonstrate, inform, and persuade.  The second semester the class will focus on debate.  Researching, writing, practicing, and presenting will be the focus of learning team work, individual performance, and impromptu skills.  This class is worth one high school credit for English or an elective.  


The Chapman home schooling adventure began in 1994. Three graduates later, I am still teaching.  As a family, we participated with several co-ops along the way. I have taught writing, literature, book-making, SAT prep, worldviews, logic, speech, and debate. My greatest pleasure is to hear former students return with success stories from their college experience as a result of taking my classes.I enjoy consulting with families about home schooling and especially those dealing with struggling children.
