As part of our new effort to put video resources online, we're pleased to present a new sample debate in the MSPDP format on the topic "Television is a Bad Influence." The debate was filmed during our summer enrichment programs here at Claremont McKenna College, and features student debaters from public and private middle schools from Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside Counties. We've also filmed an actual judge's decision of the debate, available here on Google Video. As with all of our sample debates (there are currently three available online, plus the championship debate from 2006), teachers can order DVD copies from us to use in the classroom. If you're interested in ordering DVDs, please email me at kate[dot]shuster[at]cmc.edu.
