Learning by Doing Activities

Build the vocabulary and critical thinking skills necessary for debate success through inquiry-based exercises.

Novice debaters will understand debate history, theory, and ethics and gain skills in argumentation, rebuttals, defense, flowing, and research methods.

Experienced debaters will refine research skills and develop new approaches to unique case construction, polish cross-examination skills, practice writing well-defined blocks, and improve vocabulary.

An On File feature stimulates critical thinking and encourages textual analysis through projects requiring close reading and online research.
