We believe that Public Forum debate camps should teach analysis of the resolution, backed by evidence. Debaters need to learn to reason about the resolutions, and write logical, well thought-out cases, with excellent, persuasive rhetoric. In-round strategies such as issue selection, brief/block writing, evidence analysis and skills specific to each speech in the round are all addressed. Research skills, strategic skills, cross-examination and delivery are all emphasized and practice rounds are thoroughly critiqued. We recognize that Public Forum is an event in flux: accommodating to regional differences and judge adaptation are vital for every competitor to be able to succeed and at FFI we ensure that students learn to do this. Regardless of age and ability, each debater will receive individual attention and emerge a strong competitor!
