MSQI Debate Results - October 2014

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you to MS 45 for hosting our first MSQI Debate Tournament of the 2014-2015 school year, and thank you to all the students and coaches who attended. Over 100 students from 14 schools competed.  Regardless of each student’s and each school's placement in the competition, your debaters were all winners by engaging in a text-based, rigorous, academic activity. Debate has been shown to improve students reading, writing, speaking, listening, research and critical thinking skills.
