We just started off the year in our advanced debate class and we don't have a syllabus. Any ideas for areas we should cover? Our teacher pretty much knows as much policy debate as we do.

well you could choose to do the class one of two ways: conventional and unconventional

conventional would focus on traditional policy aspects like, plans, counterplans, disads, impacts, permutation, etc.

uncoventional would focus more on improving skills neccessary for policy debate like, improving speed, teaching how to breathe effectively through your diaphram, word economy, understanding postmodern thought, etc.

my school has taught unconventional for other events like congress and interp and the results are very effective

Tonight's the night that we got the truck
We're goin' downtown gonna beat up drunks
Your turn to drive I'll bring the beer
It's the late, late shift no one to fear
And ride, ride how we ride
We ride, lowride

Curriculum Resources for Debate

1) The UDL has a lot of curriculum resources (although I don't know how non-UDL schools can access them or purchase them)

2) Also, Debate across the Curriculum is about $20 bucks. It's best for finding debate topics--although you may be just as well googling for debate topics.

3) My guess is West Coast Publishing's "Breaking down the Barriers" is probably one of the better debate texts. It may not be "advanced"

4) You might also ask this question in the "Coaching" forum--where more coaches + college debaters will stop by.

5) There used to be a website called "Teaching Policy Debate" that had free resources you could share. It will have individual lesson plans.

6) The Michigan debate institute has a yearly camp for teachers that seems to be one of the most successful + its not terribly expensive.
