Debate camp is a fantastic opportunity for all debaters, regardless of skill level, argumentative style, or event. No matter how you debate, there is a camp out there for you. Camps give you the chance to  learn from a different coaching staff, begin work on the new topic(s), and have a ton of fun.

 

Investing the time over the summer to grow as a debater can pay off enormously in the next season, and we believe that opportunity should be available to everybody, regardless of financial means. That’s why we have prepared this list of summer debate institutes which offer low-cost tuition (in comparison to the average), scholarship opportunities, or both! With camps for every event at nearly every price point, you’re sure to find something that works for you. [..]

 

Public Forum debaters, beef up your March cases with our free guide to the topic, “Resolved: In the United States, students should be guaranteed two years of free tuition to a community or technical college.” This breakdown features all of the strategy tips and free evidence you need to build awesome strategies for the pro and con. Make the most of this resolution! [..]

 

Earlier this week, we posted our guide to debating the pro side of the November 2014 Public Forum debate resolution, “Resolved: On balance, the benefits of genetically modified foods outweigh the harms.” Today, we’re releasing the con side topic guide. It contains a discussion of key terms, strategy tips, and all the core evidence you need to build a winning con case. Get it now! [..]

 

The beginning of November means a new topic for Public Forum debaters! The current resolution is “Resolved: On balance, the benefits of genetically modified foods outweigh the harms.” This is a topic that touches on a number of interesting topics, including food safety, economic development, and the environment. Today, we’re releasing our pro-side topic guide to help you navigate this resolution and build a strong pro case. Find it below the fold! [..]
