DUDL Summer Debate Camp Registration

PHASE 2 OF SUMMER DEBATE!! INTRODUCING VIRTUAL DEBATE LABS! OPEN REGISTRATION TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FREE DEBATE CAMP AUGUST 2ND – AUGUST 6TH AT RAINES HIGH SCHOOL. STUDENTS CAN ALSO BENEFIT FROM ONLINE DEBATE ACTIVITIES RIGHT AT HOME THROUGH AUGUST 20TH.

This year marks the first year for policy debate in high schools within Duval County. Join the great debaters as we make history! Free registration! The 2010 DUDL Summer Debate Institute is geared toward reviewing the fundamentals of debate, and then using that foundation to advance rhetorical theory and argumentation techniques for serious competitors. After completion of summer camp students will gain the confidence they need to succeed in any academic subject, any school debate, and any debate team competition. Students will also engage in online activities using various collaborative applications. The benefit of using virtual tools and applications is to foster synchronous and asynchronous sessions to reach students who may have challenges attending camp, enabling them to review materials, provide feedback, and ask feedback. Educators will be trained on using and assessing these types of tools in real time.

Small Group Learning Strategy & Practical Application

The 2010 DUDL Summer Debate Institute will challenge students to apply materials learned in daily instruction, online. We will set an agenda for each asynchronous/synchronous session. At the beginning of camp, students will know at a glance when each synchronous session is scheduled so they can make arrangements to participate. In addition, each session will have a specific agenda so that the discussion stays relevant to the national debate topic. Immediately following each mini-lecture, students will split up into small groups to strategize and put the materials discussed in the lecture into practice. After a presentation on the first affirmative and evidence, for example, students will break up in teams (of two) and be challenged to find flaws in the affirmative case presented within a limited time frame. Through instructor guidance, debaters will come up with winning strategic moves (in their words), which they can use in future debates. We envision an interactive, collaborative blackboard debaters can use for the remainder of schools year 2010-2011.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Summer camp debaters will have the opportunity to have practice debates and receive lengthy feedback on how to improve, and then deliver, speech “do-overs” the next day. We will watch all debaters carefully, drafting copious notes for improvement in each debater’s notebook. We will then challenge the debaters to maximize their strengths and minimize their weaknesses. Our aim is to see a progression of improvement by the time each debater leaves the institute.

Topic Lectures & Strategies

Our expert debate staff will teach students the art of refutation. From detailed lesson plans on effective delivery, to proper rebuttal, each student will take home a wealth of knowledge on how to successfully debate.

Online Communication Tools

Virtual tools make it easy for students to move past the classroom walls and connect with their peers around the world, as well as with experts in the fields they are studying. Access to our e-Learning applications give students an opportunity to experience learning in multiple ways, develop a public voice, and compare their own ideas with those of their peers.
