The TDA Year-Round Program is our most advanced and comprehensive course. In our weekly classes, students conduct current events monitoring and analysis, develop media literacy, train in public speaking, learn various forms of debate and prepare for Model UN and Model Congress conferences. Our students receive training in negotiation, politics, and history through simulation activities. Furthermore, students in this course explore various ethical and moral issues, often connected to our area of study, as well as the challenges of leadership and decision making in a democratic society. Students attend one weekly, 2-hour class from September to May, excluding traditional school holidays. Students are invited to attend two preparatory TDA Day Long Debates (Winter and Spring) and offered to attend Model United Nations and Model Congress competitive conferences.
