Pre-season Release #3 (of 8):
Monument pays particular attention to extemp, an event that we believe every debater should participate. This week’s preseason release focuses specifically on extemp, how we prepare you for success in it, and how you can get ready early on!
- Extemp Prep for July 19, 2021 (Preseason Sample) – Headline prompts for extempers concerning The U.S. Border Crisis, Cuba, and Electric Vehicles.
- Extemp Questions from Season 21 – The complete collection of Season 21 extemp questions, available to all members.
- Keys to Extemp – This book was written nearly 20 years ago, but still holds some classic tips for mastering extemporaneous speaking.
Next release is coming mid-week. On Thursday we are covering Impromptu…watch for it.

Extemp is a limited preparation event that gives students three prompts from which to choose. The prompts task the “extemper” to answer a question or opine on a news headline of the day. Champion extempers form three essential habits in order to succeed in competition:
