Great article on the Benefits of Debate....in the most unusual way… How debate team is impacting an Aviation Museum, Alaska, World War II, The Red Barron, and Snoopy....Which I also believe is the first time in world history those words have all been used together in a sentence. But just goes to show how debate skills are beneficial everywhere and anywhere. "What prepared you for your new job? The experience I gained as director of the Alaska Aviation Museum is most directly relevant, but a lot of what I do is problem solving, and the preparation for that goes back much further. Back in college, I was a member of the debate team for the University of Alaska in Anchorage. The coach there was Steve Johnson, who excelled at teaching critical thinking. Essentially, I was taught not only how to think through a problem, but around a problem."
