National Speech and Debate Association is completely immersed into preparing young leaders for the world of debate. From Declamation to Impromptu, or rather Policy Debate, both students and teachers can find an incredibly resourceful team and website in the one provided by NSDA.

Five excellent debate strategies are provided by Education World so that the new generation can try out different settings and put debates on a professional level. Personally, I think that the Four Corner Debate will especially appeal to kinesthetic learners.
There are hundreds of resources which may be wonderfully useful to both student debators and their instructors, so it is not anymore a question whether we want debates or not, but how do we use them? The International Debate Education Association is a one-stop shop for teachers who want to get the maximum out of their students in the debate, even the ones who do not consider themselves to be talented at talking in public.
