Empower Your Child To Thrive in Any Situation —
By Picking Up Debating Skills Taught by Ivy League Coaches
Go Beyond Just Being ‘Book-Smart’
We all want to raise kids who are self-motivated, adaptable problem solvers—especially in today’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (V.U.C.A) 21st-century world.
Now, more than ever, changes are becomingly increasingly unpredictable, and viewpoints increasingly polarised.
Groupthink is also on the rise: you've probably seen it play out in the comment fields of your social media news feeds.
The last thing we want for our children is to have their attention and thoughts be controlled by others because they lack the knowledge and thought processes to make informed choices.
Imagine the consequences of them growing up to become ‘yes’ men—forming beliefs simply based on face value or the opinion of others.
Don’t worry though, what if there’s a way to empower our children to...
Know how to process information, think from multiple perspectives and rigorously question ideas and assumptions rather than accepting them at face value.
Think on their feet
Able to think outside the box under pressure and deal with whatever situation life throws at them.
Have an expanded wordview
Know what’s happening in the world and be exposed to diverse viewpoints that are usually not discussed in schools or at home.
Understand their core values early
Become consciously aware of what is important to them, understand how to make decisions and understand what drives their behaviours.
And many more! These are just some of the positives behind learning how to debate. At See Change’s Debate & Public Speaking Programme, our whole purpose is to arm students with the skills, competence and confidence that will benefit them for life.
Debating & Public Speaking Sounds Boring? Think Again.
Here’s How We Do Things Differently
Make Learning a Game
Your child won’t just be staring at the teacher or whiteboard all the time. Guided by their teachers, children do more of the talking and engage in interactive games and activities that focus on honing the foundations of debate. For example, lower primary students would be prompted to pick an object they see and persuade the rest of the class to buy it. Curriculum is crafted specially for each level to help students progress smoothly without finding classes a chore.
Online Global Classroom
Classes are conducted online with international students from around the world. Learning in a global classroom offers students the opportunity to increase their awareness and understanding of other cultures, promotes critical thinking, and helps to develop an appreciation for other points of view. While literature and videos are great ways to learn about new cultures, there’s no replacement for interacting with someone who is actually from a different country.
Tutors from Top Ivy League Schools
Your child will be mentored by top scholars from Harvard, Columbia, Yale and Princeton University—many of whom have competed and won prestigious international competition in debate and public speaking. Not only is your child taught by tutors who know how to perform at the top of their field, but also gain a positive role model.
Join Debate Competition
Debate Tournaments at See Change Education are opportunities for your children to experience a formal and official debate certified by the American Parliamentary Debate Association. Your child will meet delegates from the Belt & Road partner countries, and the Greater Bay Area.
