Hi! This is a work in progress. I am in the process of building a set of resources that can help anyone learn debate. Right now, we are focusing on LD/Lincoln Douglas debate, but once I feel like that’s in good shape, I will try branch out to other styles. If you are interested in policy debate, the debate guru has a great website for you. If you are interested in public forum, Nathanial Yoon’s website has a lot of great info. - Becca
