Congressional Debate has long been a major event across the country and a qualifying event at the National Forensic League National Tournament, it has gained traction as a staple among qualifying events for the Texas Forensic Association State Tournament, and will soon become a new UIL speech event.
Although mastery in more than one event may be difficult, it is not impossible. The “crossover” nature of the events we coach helps students develop into accomplished public speakers. MGW congress faculty members have coached students of all levels thus the workshop is suited for and beneficial to novice and varsity students alike.
Students will receive daily instruction in Congressional Debate. Students will be introduced to both simple and advanced strategies. A fully researched and briefed TFA Congressional Docket for the fall season will be produced by students and provided to each by the end of the two week session. Multiple practice speeches, one on one sessions with faculty, and mock tournament sessions will be provided. In addition, students will have access to UNT’s expansive library to assist them in research.
The goal of the MGW Congress lab is to stay at the cutting edge of the event – always helping our students achieve the highest level of competitive success. This year important changes are taking place, including the transition to a 2-week only option as well as the development of an Advanced Scholars lab for select students based on qualifications.
