Today marks Day 1 of my Debate Class at High Country Home Educators in Colorado Springs. This is the first time I have taught a debate class without considering competition, sort of a new thing for me.
I have a collection of antique logic and argumentation books. They’re rather boring.
Yesterday was the first day of school. Six of our children will be attending Monument Academy, a charter school three miles from our home. Yes, this homeschool advocate is sending a bunch of his kids to a public school.
To tell you the truth, I don’t believe our homeschool beliefs have changed much at all.
I start teaching in less than two weeks in Colorado Springs. The class is a new idea in academic forensics: noncompetitive debate. I plan to blog through the 12-week course, and you may be more interested in this than you think.
Few are arguing whether debate is valuable. Many just don’t want to treat it like a sport.
The warehouse shipped 387 orders last week. If you were one of those who preordered our sourcebooks before their August 1 release, you got one of these surprise gifts in your package. Let me explain its three valuable pieces (arguably over $100!) plus how you can still get this.
We packaged and shipped 381 orders this week. All over the country, mail carriers are busy getting these out to you. Let me explain how you can still get your order in, plus how you can track your order all the way to your doorstep.
