Debate Handbooks: Needed Assets to High School Workshops.
Sayer, James Edward; Monsma, John W.
This paper argues the utility and necessity of debate evidence handbooks as part of high school summer workshops. First, debate evidence handbooks are useful because of the restrictive time element factor in summer workshops. The large number of debate resolutions and their interpretations contained in debate evidence handbooks frees the director of summer workshops from spending vast amounts of time in collecting debate evidence. Second, debate evidence handbooks supplement the library resources of host institutions during the workshop. Third, debate evidence handbooks are intrinsically useful in providing ideas for the formulation of possible case and in serving as positive precipitators of other research. The fact that a variety of material on one topic is contained in one book often has a collective cognitive effect that generates other ideas in the minds of the workshop students. (TS)
