Argumentation and Debate: Taking the Next Step helps you do just that--take the next step forward in your understanding and application of debate theory. Although this text will aid any debater, it builds upon the foundation laid in An Introduction to Policy Debate. Written for the homeschool debater, this text contains material pertinent for those competing in the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association.
Utilizing the combined wisdom of multiple authors with high school and college experience (both as competitors and coaches), the editors expand upon the theories and strategies introduced in the first text and also include new material, such as a special section on value debate. You will find helpful strategies for persuasion, case construction, refutation, and much more. But even more importantly, this text takes you back to the foundation of debate, illuminating debate's classical roots and the importance of critical thinking from a Christian worldview.
