This class is designed for those who have taken previous debate classes and are seeking to pursue debate competitively. Familiarity with debate vocabulary, structure, and technique is required. The practice debates, drills, and assignments emphasize the Lincoln Douglas and Parliamentary debate styles, although learned skills easily cross-apply to all competitive debate options. Relative to the other debate courses, this class is more technical and highly individualized. Consequently, the course revolves around exercises and full practice debates. Each week, students will participate in drills and receive individualized feedback on their performance. Along the way, the course will introduce cutting-edge strategies and techniques for use both in and out of the debate round.
