Part of LAS protocol included taking COM 267L which is a debate class the teaches you the proper ways of argumentation. This class required us to have three different debates with you’re debate partners on various topics. At first I was rather nervous for this class because I never had to formally argue with anyone. Before this class I did not know there’s a proper way to argue. We learned various topics, the most interesting to me was logical fallacies, teaching us the various ways of persuasion and deception. After going through this 16 week course I realize there was nothing to be nervous about and I can say that I’m much more confident and prepared public speaker.
