Prior to the tournament, divide the students into groups, have them register online, show them what the rounds look like, tell them their topic, and send us those lists via our Contact Form.

During the tournament, spend time in class for the groups to get together and watch their opponents posted speech for the week. Give them time to work shop ideas on how to answer in class with their groups. This enables students to get a head start on posting their "rough draft" videos to be work shopped and thereby increase the quality of their final version.

During the tournament, spend time in class teach complimentary curriculum with the topics and/or skills specific for the type of speech they're going to be giving that week. Suggested lesson plans will be forthcoming.
