Pictured above is the Titan Debate Team. Founded this year, we are currently preparing for a tournament in June, participating in a program called "Guerilla Civics," observing other high school debate teams, and getting ready to join the Urban Debate League in the Fall.
For a look into how our debate team got started please click on the files linked below:
In our first ever tournament at the end of the year, we entered six teams of two to compete against 26 other teams. There were three preliminary rounds in which the team argued either the affirmative or the negative on a resolution about a moratorium on the construction of new fast food restaurants in South Los Angeles. Two of our teams made it into the semifinals and both won their debates making for a final in which we debated our own team. needless to say, we took first and second place. Congratulations to the winners pictured from left to right below: Jorge and Ofelia (1st place) Mark and Iosdelyn (2nd place).
