Welcome to our Speech & Debate wiki!

Like the Hokey Pokey, This Is What It's All About...

This is where you need to be for announcements, assignments, due dates...and everything else pertinent to Speech & Debate.  

It is your responsibility to visit this wiki regularly...

Because if you're not in "the know," I'll know!




It is YOUR responsibility to find and print documents/handouts for class...and to have them in class the day we will be discussing them.  

Hint:  This is very much tied to your Attendance and Participation grade!

As always, let me know if you have any questions...  


Mr. F  


Movement, objects, speech, and words:

 We communicate through gross symbols.

  We call them "objective,"

 But we cannot escape our point of view.
