Question What is Classic Debate?

Solution Classic Debate is a new debate format spearheaded by Todd Hering of Eastview High School that refocuses debate on traditional skills of reasoning and persuasive speaking.

Classic Debate was designed to provide a clear alternative to the demands and excesses of policy debate. The intent is to offer an attractive opportunity for greater participation in debate.
