A key to speech and debate success is “modeling” — studying and replicating the champions that came before you. This growing archive of speeches and debates shows you how to do certain speeches and debates. Watch these videos and learn how to walk in the footsteps of champions.
Announcement: Later in 2021, the Modeling Library will be merged with the Video Library. This sets up an archiving source that will grow and grow, adding more value to our libraries as videos are released year-in and year-out.
