Debate Text Books for Title I Students

My students need a book "Speak Out" that is not provided as we are an after school program

I teach 8th grade history in a low socio-economic area. We are a high needs school with minimal community support. We are a Title I school in southern California.

I also coach debate. My debaters are some of the best public school debaters in the country. They may not have money, but they know how to research and form logical arguments. We work with a Debate Outreach program through local colleges. Many of the schools we compete with are from more affluent areas, but we do hold our own.

These texts are critical to the success of our debaters. I would like to be able to give a book to each of the debaters so that they can mark it up, take notes, and make it their own.

You will make it possible for our debaters to succeed against the schools with far greater resources.
