The PDP Teacher Workshop will be re-scheduled from Saturday, June 1 to a late August/early September date. The event will be held at Claremont McKenna College.
The workshop will include training sessions for new and experienced HS/MSPDP coaches, the new PDP rubric and other new curricular materials, the integration of public speaking and argumentation in the classroom, and support for professional presentations (extemporaneous speaking, roundtable discussion, and multimedia presentation).
A textbook and other curricular materials are available for each new PDP school. There are new debate and professional communication curricular materials for returning PDP members, including the new (2020) PDP judging guide and rubric. A luncheon is available in the middle of the day. Morning attendees )coaches new to the PDP) have a lunch break before the afternoon session and those attending only in the afternoon (returning and experienced PDP teachers) many arrive early for lunch. There is no cost for the workshop.
