Lecture Powerpoints

Our lecture series is broken into three tiers to help individualize the curriculum.  To help understand these levels, we offer a general definition of each.

  • In the Intensive level, we create a targeted approach to help students expand on what they learned in Boston.  These students chose the option to attend camps for four weeks - so these students receive an individualized curriculum set to their goals.  
  • In the Summit level, we teach a targeted curriculum to help students find consistent success on the national circuit.  Typically, students in this level are very close to achieving major success - but need the extra push to help them #ReachTheirSummit. 
  • In the Forum level, our curriculum focuses on the big picture while fine tuning the specific skills that will make debaters successful. Typically, students in this level have a strong command of fundamentals, but are just starting to witness and experience high-level debates.
