October Meeting

We have a speaker from Seattle, Sonja Knight, and  you're not going to want to miss this opportunity. Here's a teaser for our topic:
Have you considered having your student involved in speech and/or debate?  Mr. Pudewa calls homeschool speech and debate, "one of the greatest, most inspiring, truly awesome things happening on the planet.
 
Speech and Debate students gain knowledge and skills in:
 
  • Public Speaking
  • Critical Thinking, Reasoning and Logic
  • Organization
  • Argumentation and Persuasive Techniques
  • Communication including Analysis and Delivery
  • Research
  • Listening and Note-taking
  • Writing
  • Leadership Training
  • Speaking Persuasively with Poise and Grace
  • Team Work and more through …

Friendly Christ-Centered Competition.
 
Don't send your student off to college or the workplace without these skills!

"Going to that first debate tournament actually gave me hope for our nation in a way I had never before experienced.  I saw and heard these young Christian men and women preparing themselves with the writing, speaking, teamwork, and leadership skills so desperately needed in our world today-they were in many ways demonstrating the best of the homeschool world as I knew it.  I was profoundly inspired." Andrew Pudewa (www.excellenceinwriting.com)
