The Chicago Debate League is running two Judge Training Workshops this Saturday, 10/12, both at the Loyola University Chicago School of Law, 25 E. Pearson St.
On Saturday morning, 10am – 12pm, we are running our introduction to high school debate judging workshop. It is recommended for all new and newish prospective judges and all new and newish CDL coaches who wish to get an (or another) overview of policy debate 101, this year’s Latin American economic engagement Core Files, and how a judge should evaluate a debate round, determine a winner, assess speakers, and provide meaningful feedback.
On Saturday early afternoon, 12:30pm – 2:00pm, we are running a judge training workshop for all Varsity high school debaters who wish to judge at Chicago Middle School Debate League (CMSDL) tournaments this year. CDL Varsity debaters can judge at CMSDL tournaments, beginning with CMSDL T1 on October 19th, after taking one orientation workshop on the CMSDL format, CMSDL argument limits, and education features of working in the CMSDL. CDL Varsity debaters who judge in the CMSDL receive $40 per tournament, plus lunch.
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.
Registration is required. Register by Friday, 10/11, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attendees of the morning workshop will earn two hours of professional development credit within the CDL system, and two hours of CPDUs.
