Critical Thinking & Debate
Critical Thinking and Debate is a class offered at NY Edupia to challenge students to publicly speak in front of audiences and high authorities about social issues and world affairs. The class focuses on taking what your student learns from ELA and their knowledge of history to debate with peers and teachers. It is important to learn how to speak your mind just as it is to study. Critical thinking and debate will be a benefit to your child's English and language arts. We focus on enhancing your child's leadership and teamwork abilities. Classes will be held twice a week and will include researching techniques, writing comprehension, and speech.
Abacus math method of calculations is considered to be one of the fastest ways of calculations. The fact is that even if the advancements are made in the technology making it possible for human beings to perform complex calculations and to explore new dimensions in the field of knowledge, the mind of the child is completely empty and it is to be written on. Child’s mind could grab things with difficulty and has the tendency of forgetting learnt topics after some time.
It is needed to teach children how to use abacus. Abacus has proved out to be an ideal tool for those people as it allows them to calculate easily and quickly while being reliable. Abacus is easy to understand for the new beginners and it also helps in developing the mind of the children.
The use of abacus as a teaching tool has decreased in the world in the past few years. NY Edupia value traditional methods in helping our students advance.
