Speech & Debate

Chuck Hartman

Strong communication skills are an invaluable asset to any one, regardless of life setting. To be able to present your project to your supervisors in a convincing manner, or to ably defend your faith–there are countless opportunities in life to "think well on your feet." This skill, however, is not one that is possessed by most people in our society.  One of the reasons for this lack of ability to communicate well orally, and to reason logically, is the absence from modern curricula of such courses as speech and debate. This course examines various forms of forensic exercise and debate debate, prose and poetry recitation, extemporaneous speaking, and oral composition.  Dr. Hartman participated in competitive speech and debate in high school, and has taken several courses on speech and homiletics in seminary (as well as having preached for three decades).
