Forensics, in the formal sense of the word, refers to public debates or formal argumentation suitable for a court of law. For our purposes, Forensics at the middle school level provides an opportunity for students to be involved in various forms of public speaking. Debate, oral interpretation, original oratory, discussion and impromptu speaking are included in the competition.
In addition to the enhancement of public speaking skills, students sharpen their research skills, writing skills and the ability to work in cooperation with others through discussion and debate. The ultimate goal of Forensic events is to provide students with an opportunity to develop confidence in their ability to communicate ideas and points of view. The tournament is open to all students attending a participating Chester County middle school.
There are no upcoming events to display.
