First South Coast Debate Workshop a success

Thanks so much to everyone who came to our workshop in Bandon on Saturday Sept. 24th!

As promised, here’s the evidence set available for download to your computer.

Forty people participated in our workshop, including parents, teachers and student from Marshfield and North Bend, Bandon, and Coquille. Bandon is new to the debate side of Forensics, and Coquille has a brand new team this year!

Students had discussions and debates about outer space, education, and the policy debate topic this year and shared their forensics experience with Rachel Mosley and Hank Fields of ODEF.

We covered the basics and many myths about policy debate. People contributed their thoughts about education, the US debt, Keynesian economics, Pakistan, and the space race. Who knew that high schoolers were so smart these days? Must be something in the water over there.

If you couldn’t make it, don’t worry! You’re still welcome to download the evidence set and join us at the first tournament on October 8th at North Bend High School. We’ll be having another free workshop in Coquille on December 10th for the next step or for new folks who are interested.
