SPCCS recently broadcasted a students vs. teachers debate to the entire school. Eighth grader I’Man’i and seventh grader Quinten spoke for the student team. Sister Maria and Mr. Havelk, represented the teachers.
The resolution: Tik-tok should be banned. The students learned how to cite evidence for their positions and respond to questions presented by the opposition.
Mr. H, as he. is known to the students, organized the Debate Team after several students expressed an interest in having one. "I wanted to learn more about how to present an educated argument on a topic," I'Man'i said. "Now I am better at it."
