Students Debate! is the result of years of debate coaching and English teaching. The project has taken the thinking, researching, writing, and speaking skills used by Southview High School, a consistent qualifier to the National Forensic League U.S. Debate Tournament, and brought them to the high school classroom. The skills that have lead to students on debate teams around the nation gaining admission to top colleges is here for your English language arts or social studies classroom.

You will also receive a visual presentation for a sample debate in both Smart Notebook and PowerPoint format. The package has everything you need to teach this project immediately and successfully.
