ABOUT

The High School Debate Institute is open to beginner and varsity high school debaters in public forum debate and policy debate. Thanks to our partnership with Hunter College, students will have full access to library, computer and internet resources to maximize debate research opportunities. In policy debate students will work in small labs to prepare files to prepare on the annual debate topic. In public forum debate, students will be researching and writing on the topic areas of the September/October public forum debate resolution.

Programs include lectures by master debate coaches, small group working debate "labs" to practice debate skills, daily practice debates, and culminating debate tournament that ends with an awards ceremony at the end of the institute. The Debate Camp is staffed by New York’s top high school debate coaches, teachers, alumni and debaters. Tracks are available for beginners as well as advanced debaters. Skills include public speaking, cross examination, critical thinking, research, argumentative writing, public forum debate, and policy debate. Subjects include the current policy debate resolution, philosophy, political science, critical theory, economics, history, geography, international politics and more.
