- Innovative Thinking.
The breadth of arguments being explored in Public Forum can be expanded.
In addition to our regular topic analysis, we will provide a new file
focused on critical theory (philosophy) as well as a rebuttal file
answering the work produced by other sites. Both are sure to give you the
- Free Topic Analysis.
We will work with our partners - national champion coaches and leading
debate topic researchers - to produce timely, thoughtful, and insightful
comments on each Public Forum topic.
- Free Teaching Resources. We will continue to work to gather the available free
teaching resources on Public Forum debate right here - your one-stop site
for all things PF Debate!
We have designed an
exclusive collection of evidence-intensive files for monthly topics:
Our monthly file includes a
broad collection of evidence that highlights the primary arguments found in
literature supporting the core of each side of the topic. Our research
emphasizes quality research and topic coverage. By including research from a
critical angle - social, political, economic, and philosophical theory - our
files will help you and your squad dig deeper into each topic and separates us
from other brief companies. Stay ahead of the competition, and help
advance the level of argumentation in Public Forum Debate. This file is
scheduled for completion about 2 weeks before debate on the topic
begins. We will also release Special Edition files for
the NSDA National Tournament in June.
Of course, we want to
continue to improve. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Those of you familiar with PFDebate.com from recent years know that Bob Jordan
launched the site from Springfield, Missouri many years ago as a pioneer in
Public Forum Debate. The site provided an invaluable resource for PF coaches
and debaters around the country. Bob's work on Crossfire Briefs as well as his
regular topic analysis moved the event forward, and they will be deeply missed.
Sadly, the Public Forum community lost Mr. Jordan in late 2011.
The re-launch of PFDebate.com came in Summer 2012 under new ownership. We think
you'll like our vision of the site moving forward. We will continue to
work over the coming months and years to develop new options for improving our
offerings. We have exciting plans in store, and we will remain dedicated to
listening to your needs.
