An Introduction to Policy Debate
This accessible textbook opens the door to the exciting world of debate. Written for beginning debaters, it first answers the question What is formal debate?, then unfolds each subsequent step from researching the resolution, constructing the affirmative case, and preparing negative strategies to using evidence and practicing speech and delivery. The final chapters cover what to expect in a live debate, how to identify and understand various judging philosophies, and how to win and lose graciously.
Companion DVD Set: A chapter-by-chapter companion to the textbook provides helpful practical application of the principles in the textbook along with insightful analysis of two complete debate rounds.

Another blessing from homeschooling in high school was that our daughter was very comfortable setting up her semester class schedule and study schedule at college because she had already been doing that at home. She has witnessed public/private high school graduates in tears because they had no idea how to schedule their classes and study time as their schedules had always been done for them by a computer and just handed to them in their brick-and-mortar schools. As in-coming college students, these kids had no idea how to manage their time, but our daughter did because of homeschooling.—E.M.
