In keeping with our company policy of continually improving and updating our products, our Introduction to Debating seminar has been redesigned and renamed:
Debating: An Introduction (Beginner).
While the majority of the seminar is still focused on teaching students the foundations of Brainstorming and PEEL, there are also some brand new features and materials such as our Smartboard Presentation that look at the elements of debating, and Teacher Notes that will ensure both teachers and students are engaged and getting the most out of every seminar.
This term we will also be working on two new seminars for students that have mastered the basics of debating and are looking for more of a challenge. These are:
Debating: In Practice (Intermediate) & Debating: In Principle (Advanced)
Both of these Workshops will be available from Term 3 2013.
Masters Academy is now offering discounted group rates on 2013 Persuasive Writing Workshops for years 3 and 5.
Beginning in Term 2, the Persuasive Writing Workshop will be charged at a flat fee of $900 for 100 students.
Previously this workshop would have cost over $1,500 for the same students - a saving of over $600!
And that's not all - You can save a further $200 if you book two year groups before Friday 10th May.
This workshop is a great way to prepare students in years 3 and 5 for NAPLAN, by giving them a framework for expanding and elaborating on ideas. Incorporating both written and oral aspects, our seminars teach young students how to analyse, explain and persuade.
Students will learn how to deconstruct stimulus questions and frame appropriate responses, examine different persuasive techniques and explore written components of persuasion.
