Public Forum Debate Lesson Plans

This is a set of lesson plans for introducing students to Public Forum (PF) Debate, created by the National Speech and Debate Association. The 10 lessons, which cover topics ranging from understanding the nuts and bolts of PF to argument and case construction to the ability to keep track of arguments by debaters during the round, can be used in their entirety or serve as a starting point for designing your own PF unit.
