Online Resource – PBS Point of View series

Filed under: Academics,Debate,Instructional Ideas — bk2nocal @ 8:58 pm

I am searching for interesting material to use in my Argumentation and Debate class next semester and came across the PBS website for their Point of View series.  I’ve used Frontline material in my classes before and thought it was great, but I haven’t used any of the POV stuff.  But, it seems perfect for both debate classes and parliamentary debate teams for background information on a bevy of issues.  The topics seem what would be interesting to students and PBS supplies suggestions for using the materials in classes.  They even refer to using the forensics coach on campus to access “ballots” for evaluating in-class debates.  There are a number of shows on varying subject matter, both domestic and international.
