We have been teaching debate camps at Ivy Christian Academy for 6 weeks straight. Now in week 7 of 8 we are almost done! It’s been a good experience. Our students are mostly Korean-Americans who live in Fairfax, VA. Experienced debaters from nearby Vector have come out to help this new crowd get their debate feet wet.
These students are learning the NCFCA resolution even though none are homeschooled. Last year there were some opportunities to attend practice tournaments in the fall and we’re planning on doing so again. I’d strongly encourage reaching out to local Christian private schools to help them participate in communication-focused debate. It is as rewarding for them as it is to our usual audience.
