Teaching The Art Of Debate

Listen
AIR DATE: July 23, 2013

The UNLV debate team is nationally ranked. It turns out the Rebels know how to hold their own in an argument. This week the university debate group is hosting two dozen area high school students to help them fine-tune their debate skills. We're joined by three of the UNLV debate team members to learn more about the art of debate, and how it's been shown to help kids, especially at-risk kids, to better perform in high school.

GUESTS

Jacob Thompson, head of the Sanford I. Berman Debate Forum, the UNLV debate team and an assistant professor at the Department of Communications

Michael Eisenstadt, assistant coach and  M.A. candidate in the Department of Communication Studies

Alex Velto, UNLV Senior majoring in political science and a member of the team
