My school participates in forensics, as do I. Forensics means “speech and debate”. When there is a tournament, a bunch of school get together at one school and there are two events; improv and debate. Improv is recitation. A group of students are in a room and one at a time, they recite a speech, or a monolouge. The other part is debate. The kids are paired with one other person and argue a topic. They don’t know what side of the topic they will be on (pros or cons) so they have to have evidence and a speech for both sides. At the end of the year, the top competitors go to Nationals. Ask your school today if they have a forensics team or are interested in forensics. It is really fun, and helps you get into collages. Have fun out there!
