Eliminating Borders through Debate Education.
Peterson, Keith; Clower, Ramona
As the world moves into the millennium, students will need certain skills to be successful in a global environment. This paper argues that competitive international exposure through debate can provide these skills. The paper consists of three sections. The first section briefly reviews current literature identifying the academic and intercultural benefits provided by a well rounded debate education. The second section provides narrative documentation of the international travel done by the Arkansas State University Speech and Debate Team along with the benefits gained as a result of its travel. The third section presents a list of international events available to anyone wishing to take advantage of the gains provided by international debate exposure. Contending that the time has come for people to begin eliminating borders through effective education, the paper focuses on competitive debate as a "wonderful place to start."
