¿Why debate? Adam Jacobi of the National Forensic League talks about how debate fulfills the Common Core State Standards and how it helps students to high academic achievement. Forensic competition events fall into two classifications for the purpose of analyzing how they meet Common Core State Standards:

Debate and Public Speaking

Includes debate events, oratorical, informative, and extemporaneous speaking; requires students to construct thoughtful advocacies about timely issues and challenges.

Interpretive Performance of Literature

Requires students to synthesize passages from literary selections, and perform their own unique interpretation of the characterization and story to convey a particular theme or message.
