A book chapter by Kendrea James, lecturer in arts, languages, and philosophy, “Competition and Community-Building in Forensics,” has been published in Competition, Community, and Educational Growth: Contemporary Perspectives on Competitive Speech and Debate. The text includes academic thought on the impact of forensics with insights beyond the high school experience.
The book frames best practices to provide educational growth with learning outcomes. It examines contemporary perspectives on competitive speech and debate theory, experience and instructional methods.
At S&T, James teaches principles of speech. Her book chapter focuses on how collegiate speech and debaters experience the competitive atmosphere and how the experience affects their personal growth, academics and interpersonal relationships. Because speech and debate students discussed their experiences as positive, James has shared her research here to help academics, students, coaches and teachers learn more about competition.
The book is edited by Kristopher Copeland and Garret L. Castleberry and published by Peter Lang. View a section of the book.
