CMSDL Coach Training Seminar IV — Saturday, 10/12, 12:30pm – 3:30pm

The Chicago Middle School Debate League has its fourth coach training seminar of seven now scheduled for the 2013/14 season — Coach Training Seminar IV — this Saturday, 10/12, 12:30pm – 3:30pm, at the Loyola Law School, 25 E. Pearson St.

This seminar will focus on helping CMSDL coaches get ready for the first debate tournament of the year, October 19th. We’ll begin by conducting the Mini-Debate Exercise on a couple of off-case issues (Topicality against the Mexico Security case, the China Disad against Mexico, and the Diplomatic Capital Disad against Venezuela). Then we will engage in strategy-sharing and problem-solving amongst colleagues, and finish with a review of a pre-T1 readiness checklist.

Parking at lots near the Loyola Law School is $10, with validation from the lobby of the law school building (the Philip H. Corboy Center, 25 E. Pearson St.). The Loyola Law School is also right off of the Chicago stop on the CTA red line.
