Speech and Debate: Covid Edition!

Hello Falcons!

We are excited that Speech & Debate is back, with a virtual format. Our speech team will be competing in storytelling, humorous interpretation, and impromptu. For those who are not familiar with these categories, storytelling is where the student memorizes a story and performs it for the judge, acting out the actions and even voicing different characters. Humorous interpretation is a new category for our SPAS team and we are excited to see how it goes. In humorous interpretation the student memorizes and performs a comedic monologue. Lastly, impromptu, which is also a newer category for us, is where a student is given a topic at the beginning of a round and a certain amount of time to write and present a speech on that topic.

We are competing in  the Southern California Junior Forensic League competition on February 20th. We  have had two practices thus far, and we appear to have a very enthusiastic team. We are very excited to continue with Speech, and look forward to the competition!
