As the new school year gears up, that means it’s time to hit the ground running with debate. Whether you are a new debater or more experienced, now is the time to set goals for the year. No, I’m not talking about what tournaments you want to win. What I want you to think about is….
HOW do you want to improve as a debater this year?
The best goal is not a certain number or type of win, but a something you can work on monthly, no matter what topic, and build on round by round.
If you’ve ever wondered, “Well, how do I improve the skill I want to?” you’re in luck – that is one of things I hope to answer in Beyond Resolved.
It’s great that you visit the blog and use the free posts (they are for you!), but don’t forget there are skills to build behind each topic. Beyond Resolved is the only comprehensive PF manual on the market meant for every level of debater and coaches alike. Check out a copy on Kindle for just $10 or get yourself a print copy for $20 on Amazon. It will walk you through all the skills necessary to great PF debating and help you decide how to develop your debating to meet your goals.
Take time this September to do more than research.
Spend time making concrete goals for the debate season.
Invest in your debate skills, whether it’s with Beyond Resolved or working more closely with your partner, team, coach, etc.
You owe it to yourself to be the best debater you can be!
