PUBLIC FORUM TOPIC ONLINE RESOURCES FOR SAUDI ARABIA TOPIC.  We have created a digital debate classroom for each of the monthly PF topics. You can find plug and play resources for your debate practices or send students directly the registration information below to access - (a) Powerpoint Lectures on the topic; (b) Sample Speeches that can be used at the tournament for both speakers; (c) Games on topic vocabulary and readings; (d) videos; (e) curated articles and more.  Since the March topic for high school is different, this may not be available for March which will be Financial Literacy. But will return for the April topic for sure. Would love your feedback on this new resource for teachers and students.  You can email us at info@debate.nyc if any issues on registering for the class.
