We are the newest member of the SOUTH CAROLINA BAR LAW EDUCATION CENTER. WE NOW HAVE A DEBATE TEAM!!! Our first match will be in February and we have a plethora of material to cover. The Social Studies and English Departments here at RHHS have long understood the value of competitive debate and the role it plays in advancing the skills which are so important for the real world success of our students. These skills include academic research on a broad range of social, political, and economic issues. They also include listening and critical thinking skills; being able to listen to what someone says, evaluate its meaning, and respond with persuasive argumentation. Most importantly, debating includes public speaking skills; the ability to express yourself clearly and confidently.
