Value debate is, in this coach’s opinion, the single most useful exercise a young debater can master. We are asked to make value judgements of some form nearly every day. As communicators in a modern world, learning how to critically discern and oral navigate value judgments both for ourselves and with others is a timely and necessary skill. In this class, Coach Joe will outline the foundational principles of Lincoln Douglas debate, provide the basic building blocks for case creation, theory, and strategy, and introduce the drills and skills needed to excel.
Bio – Joseph Sigwarth is an NCFCA Alumni from Region VI. He competed in speech and debate for four years, during which time he began his own club and eventually went on to compete on the national level. During his college career, he served four terms in student government, lobbied at the statewide and national levels, and student taught policy debate. He currently coaches two debate clubs in Northern Virginia, where he lives and works. Coaching the next generation of communicators is a privilege and a challenge that he enjoys immensely. His greatest joy is seeing his students set and achieve their own challenging goals.
