This is a different type of opportunity

HOW MIGHT WE RECRUIT STUDENTS (AND SCHOOLS) IN A VIRTUAL WORLD? 0 replies 137 views

recognizing that this is an opportunity to get students involved in debate that would not normally be involved

         - lower barrier for engagement

         - having scrimmages between schools

         - having students debate topics that are not the national topic

         - connecting debate with state standards so students can engage with class material as well

         - 1 on 1 challenge debates (can get varsity debaters super engaged)

- recruiting students (how to get a novice into a tournament for the first time):

         - keep the bar to entry low; with the CJR topic, there is already some sort of buy-in

         - short lecture (10-15 min) on the topic and then have an activity around it
