Argumentation and Debate: Taking the Next Step helps you do just that--take the next step forward in your understanding and application of debate theory. Although this text will aid any debater, it builds upon the foundation laid in An Introduction to Policy Debate. Written for the homeschool debater, this text contains material pertinent for those competing in the National Christian Forensics and Communications Association.

Features include:

  • A discussion of different case types, including Alternative Justification (AJAC) cases
  • Special sections explaining stock issues, absolute voting issues, and the differences between them
  • A section on value debate, including case construction and value hierarchies
  • Practical lists, charts, references, glossary, and index
  • A distinctly Christian interpretation of debate theories and strategies
