Speech and Debate Information



If you want to build your public speaking skills, practice critical thinking, or just want to learn how to win an argument, the Rancho Debate Team is for you! We are a team at Rancho that competes in both the Lincoln Douglas (1 v. 1) and Public Forum (2 v. 2) debate styles. Our team practices once a week after school, and we generally do very well at the competitions we attend throughout the school year. It’s a great chance to improve confidence, work as part of a team, and learn about current events or subjects outside of the usual academic curriculum.                                                                              speech and debate

The team is open to all Rancho students (even if they are currently at IVA), and no prior experience is required. If you are interested, please fill out this form https://forms.gle/j7Cidryt7hcCtu8j7 to be added to our Canvas page, from which we will provide more information/announcements about our interest meeting next week. If you have any questions, you can contact the coaches at ranchomsdebate@gmail.com or Mr. Gharadaghian at AghassiGharadaghian@iusd.org
