The Competitor's Handbook contains a 12-week policy debate course designed to teach both novice and advanced students the theory and practice of policy debate. Students will learn how to reason; research a topic; construct, defend, and refute an argument; and communicate in a persuasive way to many different types of audience. In addition, this course offers students plenty of opportunities to exercise these skills through fun and practical hands-on activities that accompany each lesson. Throughout this course students will also learn to apply a Christian worldview to the activity of debate and be inspired to use their communication skills in service to Christ.
