Forensics, in the formal sense of the word, refers to public debates or formal argumentation suitable for a court of law. For our purposes, Forensics at the middle school level provides an opportunity for students to be involved in various forms of public speaking.  Public Forum Debate, Dramatic and Humorous Interpretation, Expository speaking, and Impromptu speeches are included in the competitions.  We will have three tournaments this year and will compete with Sacajawea Middle School, Headwaters, and Anderson.  The ultimate intent of Forensic events is to provide students with an opportunity to develop confidence in their ability to communicate ideas and points of view.
