Our Manhattan Debate Institute is one of two locations we offer in Summer 2019 where students can choose to participate for either one or two week tracks. Staffed by New York’s top middle school and high school debate coaches, teachers, alumni and debaters, debaters of all skill levels from beginner to advanced are encouraged to attend. Skills taught include public speaking, cross examination, critical thinking, research, argumentative writing, public forum debate, and policy debate. Subjects include the current policy debate resolution, philosophy, political science, critical theory, economics, history, geography, international politics and more. 

 

Like our other camps, each week of the Manhattan Summer Institute culminates in a camp-wide tournament at the end of the week, giving students real tournament experience and a competitive edge in future debate tournaments with the NYCUDL and beyond. Our awards ceremony will also recognize students for their incredible work, and those with outstanding attendance will receive a Certificate of Completion. Individual lab leaders also have the ability to recognize the top students in their labs.
