Communicators in the Classroom

Communicators in the Classroom was created in 2012 to provide tools, resources, and support to school districts with little or no access to speech and debate programs, helping to create and define a culture of academic success through competition.

The program encourages speech and debate activities inside and outside of the classroom to teach students the academic skills they need to excel in school, college, and the workforce.

Communicators in the Classroom provides free resources such as textbooks, coursework, free membership and resource packages with learning tools, materials, classes, webinars, and more for all students, teachers and coaches involved.

Communicators in the Classroom has been working with the Broward County School District since 2012, helping bring speech and debate to every high school in the district.

Communicators in the Classroom has changed the patchwork of Broward County Public Schools. With over 10,000 of our students in debate classes, and access points at almost 100 schools, our partnership with the NSDA has dramatically changed the way our students learn, communicate, and compete.
