Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

Did you know the two sides of a debate are the proposition and opposition? Are you curious on how to participate in a debate? In this class, students will be guided through how to speak for the proposition and the opposition. In addition, students will gain a better understanding about the art of rebuttal. This class is aimed at Years 7 - 9 but is great for any student who is going to participate in a debate.
