The aim of the Gustavus Summer Public Forum Debate Institute is to
teach students entering grades 9–12 in the fall of 2015 how to
construct logical, cogent, compelling arguments and convey them in a
manner accessible to a general audience. Daily activities include
vocal warm-ups, skills workshops, individual coaching sessions, and
Gustavus value sessions. High school coaches from around the Midwest
with extensive knowledge in Public Forum debate will critique
participants and lead lecture sessions.
