The National Parliamentary Debate League is excited to announce a new initiative to make coaching and education more accessible for all schools: office hours! Coordinated by Isabella Riezler, a debater from Parliamentary Debate at Berkeley, office hours will be held monthly through Google Hangouts, and will feature a different coach each month.
April's office hours will be focused on research strategies and current events and will be run by Lilly Hackworth. Champion of the 2017 Parliamentary Debate Tournament of Champions, the Stanford Invitational, and nearly countless other tournaments, Lilly is a student at the University of Chicago, and coaches for Sequoia High School. Date and time will be determined based on your availability.
February's office hours were run by Basil Abushama, a student at UC Berkeley and two-time champion of the Parliamentary Debate Tournament of Champions.
In order to sign up for office hours, fill out our form below. To best benefit students, we have included sections on the form asking for prior experience as well as the concepts that debaters feel comfortable and uncomfortable with. This helps us plan effectively for each session held, and also gives us an idea of what students are looking for in the future.
We hope to see you in April!
