Hi there, campers! I’m just hanging out and enjoying the sun here on another lovely day at Camp One Clap on One Clap Speech and Debate. Congress competitors, are you ready? Counselor Alexis Worthen will be gifting you part four of her five part series, Capturing the Congress Crown. This week’s episode is called "Capable Cross-Examination." 🏕️👏👑
Alexis Worthen is a quad-ruby and Academic All-American, formerly debating for Natrona County High School. She is also a 3x Nationals competitor. Alexis has competed in a wide variety of events, but has stuck with Public Forum, Extemp, and Congressional Debate for the longest. She will be heading off to Simmons University in the fall, studying political science and public policy. Alexis is joining Camp One Clap, serving as a Congress Counselor. Over the next five weeks, she’ll go over some key tips and tricks to help you capture your congress crown.
Thanks so much to Counselor Alexis Worthen! Alexis will actually close out her fabulous congress series with Episode 5 of Capturing the Congress Crown next Tuesday at Camp One Clap!
What should you look forward to at Camp tomorrow? Episode four of Troop Leader Talk with Counselor Marcus Viney and Counselor Bailey Patterson will be live! Troop Leader Talk explores what it means to lead your troop (as a coach) and prepare students to navigate the world with clarity, courage, and the spirit of a true champion. Also, Counselor Adrian Graham will drop another fantastic episode of Professor Graham and Kevin’s ABCs of Debate.
In case you missed it, here is Professor Graham and Kevin's fab episode for today - "rebuttal":
