Public Forum Video Training Curriculum
The Great Debate public forum training videos start at the very beginning, asking "what is debate?" and introduce the basic parts of public forum debate. If you're new to debate as a student, parent, or coach, these videos will help you master the basics of public forumdebate! Videos are available on our YouTube page or at the column to your right.
These videos supplement the information available in The Great Debate handbook which is a vital resource for any debater who seeks to gain a deeper understanding of the material presented in the videos.
In addition to the videos and the materials in The Great Debate handbook, we offer free handouts, syllabus, and suggested additional readings via email. If you would like to receive a copy of the "coach's packet" please use the form below or email : firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass the materials on to you. Please include your name, email address, and which league(s) you coach for in your request. "Student packets" are also available (the blank handouts only).
While we provide these resources for free, if you find them helpful, we would appreciate if you hit our tip jar.
