What Members Say
Allows students to navigate it well – much of the initial learning can be done by them on their own, which leaves coaches free to focus attention on higher level teaching and coaching.
The textbooks and access to Nationals videos are especially useful for my team!
Video archive of final rounds and excellent models of each event. I start every unit I teach with my beginners with examples from NSDA finals. I also LOVE that there is representation for women, people of color, wonderful diversity so that over the course of my semester of examples my kids see high school kids who look like them doing speech or debate at a high level of excellence.
