8/3 to 8/7 “Speech and Debate Changes Lives” Summer Camp

Speech and Debate Changes Lives–Jerry Yang

Speech and debate changes lives. From building confidence, improving communication, and increasing critical thinking skills to better preparing students for college—speech and debate activities provide life skills vital to a young person’s success in the future. Utilizing these skills inside and outside of the classroom teaches students the value of critical thinking, the ability to clearly articulate thoughts and ideas, to answer questions logically with clarity, and to think on one’s feet. Additionally, students develop interpersonal skills such as conflict resolution, assertiveness, and listening to peers. These important life skills empower youth to become engaged citizens, skilled professionals, and honorable leaders in our society.

Schools that provide speech and debate programs report:

  • Increased attendance
  • Higher tests scores
  • Rise in college acceptance

Parliamentary debate is an extemporaneous, generally policy-oriented form of two-person debate. In each debate, a two-student team represents the government side (or the side affirming the resolution); a second two–student team represents the opposition side (or the side negating the resolution). Students are expected to present arguments supporting their side while refuting arguments of the other team. Each team is given 20 minutes of preparation for a 38 min debate.

TESTIMONIALS
Every debater needs a good, solid foundation to build one’s career on. From the start, debaters must learn to break down walls of a fear for public speaking and start thinking critically. It is a daunting task and an arduous journey to begin alone. As a debater once under Jerry’s experienced wing, I was able to make this important transition with his help, into a life of confidence, eloquence, and critical thinking. Debate. It was only Jerry’s patience and experience that gave me a sturdy foundation for debate, an activity that once seemed foreign, but is now impossible to imagine without.                      - William Zeng, Sophomore at Los Altos

8/3 to 8/7 MUN summer camp(模拟联合国夏令营)

We have already conducted two successful sessions, and here are what students have to say:

“The class was really enjoyable. I used to really dislike reading about political issues…This class pretty much changed my perspective and I’ll definitely join MUN in high school.”

“This was a really good introduction to MUN–it covered the basics of a conference, writing, and speech giving.”

Overall it was a great class  worth taking!

What is Model United Nations?

MUN is an organization that many high schools and colleges around the world compete in. Much like the real United Nations, students represent different countries or personas and work in committees to solve various issues, ranging from environmental problems to historical events to military issues. Students are judged holistically, based on their participation, research, solutions, and diplomacy. Through the activity, students learn about international relations, gain confidence, and learn how to become leaders.

The benefit to join MUN

  1. It’s one of the most respected high school and college organizations in the world. Being a member, or president, of this club will add another dimension to your high school life and college application.

  2. MUN practices many soft skills necessary for any industry, including engineering, medicine, law, and business. MUN coaches team-work, conflict-resolution, problem solving, persuasion, and confidence, unlike other public speech clubs. These skills will build success no matter whatever future profession you wish to pursue.

  3. MUN explores a diverse range of issues that everyone should be well versed on, including health, medicine, energy, environment, and security. Even if students are not interested in the humanities or social sciences, MUN will broaden their understanding of any subject they are invested in.

  4. The club is more popular in the east coast, and is relatively undiscovered in the west coast. This is a great opportunity to explore and start a new organization that your school may not have discovered!

2015 Science Fair Training Class

What is Science Fair?
Science fairs are the largest science competitions for middle school and high school students. They involve the application of the scientific method towards designing, conducting and presenting original research. Students explore their interests in science through a hands-on approach and develop valuable skills useful later in life. In addition, Science Fairs provide a unique opportunity to meet others interested in science, which allows students to build a network of success-driven friends at an early age.

2015 Graphic Design Summer Camp

Are you interested in:
-business, marketing, art, or entrepreneurship?
-gaining an edge when applying to internships in the future?
-adding skills to your resume or college application?
-learning fun, new skills?

In this one-week course, students will learn the basics of graphic design as well as how to use Adobe Illustrator. Why learn graphic design? Learning graphic design opens up doors for future opportunities in many industries, including technology and business. Just from my own personal experience, the instructor Joyce was able to obtain a marketing internship at a medical software company in high school because her experience in graphic design translated to creating marketing collateral such as powerpoints and e-books. While students will learn the basic tools to use these programs, they will also learn how to apply this knowledge to create various print and web media. By the end of the week, students will have a mini portfolio of design projects!

“花裤子“暑期活动--大学申请--爬藤

现在大家都知道暑期活动对申请名校非常重要。不少父母挖空心思思考在暑假孩子做什么特别的事可以进到美国数一数二的大学。不少父母不惜代价送孩子参加一些昂贵的,“特别”的,被称为 “fancy-pants activities 花裤子活动”以实现自己的梦想。例如,到第三世界国家做义工,到一个文化古国旅游来学习他们的艺术和建筑了,花几千甚至上万美元参加名校的summer college等等。

一些资深的升学指导认为,完全没必要做这些“花裤子活动”来进入你的理想的大学,很可能你为了升学而做的这些动作反而会降低您被录取的可能性。

美国是个同情弱势的社会。当你让人感觉到你已经在一个优势地位上,你在大学录取的人眼中已经处于劣势了。

到底什么样的暑期活动是最有意义的呢?
