The eighth grade students have been engaged in passionate and thoughtful debates this past week on challenging and relevant topics such as WikiLeaks, gun control and whether employers and colleges have the right to access an applicant's social media accounts. Working collaboratively in teams, they scoured multiple sources, took copious notes, wrote summaries, formulated compelling arguments, and rehearsed their speeches to prepare for this annual event. The girls performed with confidence, poise and thoughtful analysis. Congratulations to all of them!
