A few quick facts about how clubs work
What does it take to be a DebateAble coach?
Debate coaches do not need to be specialists, with extensive training in oratory and logic. The coaches' job is to foster the development of thinking skills in their students, and to listen, question, react, guide discussion, give them direction and create a climate of respect.
We have found that debate clubs work best when the coach is a member of the school community - such as a teacher or parent - who is familiar with both the kids and the culture of a particular school. Once a coach has been identified for your school's club, DebateAble provides full training and step-by-step lesson plans for the coach, as well as competitive compensation.
