The South Loop Elementary School Debate Club teaches students the fine art of formulating an argument and how to effectively debate both sides of an issue, even if they do not agree with the stance. The club is led by Rishi Agrawal and Judge Robin Shoffner, Circuit Court of Cook County.
This challenging club will greatly enhance a student’s confidence in public speaking, understanding of current events, and analytical ability. If students have a desire and willingness to read and study, and to attend practice, they will do very well and thoroughly enjoy the experience. Throughout the school year, students compete in five tournaments against top schools in the city.
