Each term of debate is worth 2 credits. Students can take 6 terms of debate for a maximum of 12 elective credits.
Spoken and written assignments are evaluated by the coach and students are assessed on performance and knowledge, just as in any other debate class.
You can sign up, yes! However, please be advised that a certain level of fluency and vocabulary is necessary for debate; significant ESL issues may be reflected in student grades.
You can drop the credit aspect of the course and continue in debate. However, if you decide to quit debate, please contact our office to inquire about our refund and credit policies.
Students must be in grade 9 or above and be attending an accredited BC school.
