Sample Schedule, Overview

Overview and General Schedule

Much of the WNDI schedule is tailored to individual groups and the emphasis is on understanding arguments and engaging in debates.  We work long days, but we take time to enjoy three meals a day and often have a bit of time for some frisbee or other recreational activities.  For the majority of the day, every day, we work on debate with intensity and guided critical thinking so the process can continue after the workshop and the students return home.

We have schedule information posted on our Facebook page (Whitman National Debate Institute) and we will be posting detailed week-by-week schedules here.  We will also provide curriculum overviews shortly and are more than willing to answer any questions about the institute at
