Hello, I am a teacher in training, and will be doing my student teaching semester next year, split between social studies and debate classes. I want to start planning my curriculum and lesson plans, and was hoping to go some advice, and maybe eventually feedback, from the community here. I didn't find any other forum threads that seemed extremely relevant, but please let me know if some of this has already been discussed. I am most curious about what resources are out there for coaches, in regards to lesson examples, articles, suggested activities, forums on the subject, etc. This is what I am aware of already: Cross-X's Novice center NDCA's Open Evidence Project, Coaching/Teaching Resources, and Wiki Planet Debate Georgetown Debate Seminar 2011 NFL and NFL Resources Debatepedia! I am a former Debater, who had several coaching switches and ineffective classroom environments. As a Teacher and Coach myself, I want to create an effective, organized, and enjoyable classroom experience. The current Debate teacher is a contract employee, with a legal background, but no teaching experience/training. I find his approach too dictatorial, disorganized, and generally ineffective. I find this depressing and often frustrating, but as least I have a clear example of what I do not want to replicate. Therefore, please share any other resources you may have and I would be very grateful. If anyone wants to share examples of lesson plans, I also would be very interested in seeing these. Over the next few months as I start writing my own, I will post them here and would appreciate any feedback! Thanks, and best of luck this semester to your teams. Ben
