Debatepedia – Take a look!

Filed under: Debate,Information literacy,Instructional Ideas,Research — bk2nocal @ 11:41 pm

This message appeared on edebate this week and I thought I would pass it on to those of you who may not be on that listserv.  I took a look at it and I think it would be helpful for your classes, parliamentary debaters, as well as novice policy debaters!  Thanks Brooks!

I would like to introduce to you Debatepedia.org, “the Wikipedia of debate”. Debatepedia offers citizens the opportunity to volunteer their intellect as editors on the site, for the purpose of building an encyclopedia of debates, arguments, and evidence that helps thousands of other citizens deliberate on complicated public debates. Have a look, and please consider volunteering your time to this important social cause.
