Jeju Middle School Training
Revision as of 09:00, 13 December 2007
Seogwi Jungang Girl's Middle School in Seogwipo, Jeju, South Korea will be hosting a free debate training for any interested middle school students and teachers. The event is designed to introduce students to debate and some of the more important concepts in argumentation. We plan to work from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon in 2 tracks: an English-language track led by Alex Dukalskis (International Debate Education Association), and a Korean-language track led by Joshua Park (Korea Debate Association). Elizabeth Humphrey, a Fulbright Grantee at Seogwi Jungag Girl's Middle School, is also on the organizing team with Joshua and Alex and will be helping with training in the English track.
To register, simply RSVP to Alex (email@example.com) or Elizabeth (firstname.lastname@example.org), and include the following information:
- Student names
- School name and teacher name
- Indicate Korean track or English track
- Phone number
It would be helpful if one representative from each school could email one of us on behalf of all your students. Please be sure that if you RSVP you actually intend to come!
