We have made a ton of improvements to Monument Members for Season 20! More events, more releases, and a BONUS season to keep students sharp through the competitive season. Check out what Members are saying…
A MUST for any debater
Helpful materials from many sources, on different topics! A MUST for any debater.
A New Coach
I’m a new debate coach and needed to be refreshed in the current modes of writing arguments. Things sure have changed since my days of cutting and gluing our own evidence cards. I sure appreciate seeing how it’s done now so I can teach my students the more modern efficient methods.
Information Vital to Success
Monument Members has been an integral part of my debate experience. It provides information vital to the success of our competitors, and it helps us to be better prepared and more knowledgeable in our debates. Thank you, Monument, for everything you do for us.
Saved Time on Research
This website has all the information you need to be successful. I saved a lot of time on research because everything I needed was here. Thank you Monument Press!
Highlight of My Week
I love starting the beginning of the school week with new monument materials. It is the highlight of my week!
How to Write Speeches
I like how the platform speeches also have pieces of advice as to how to write successful pieces.
For Novice Students
Chris, thank you for this service. It is helpful to have cases and ideas, especially for the novice students.
Helps Me Teach
Debate is a difficult subject with many steps. Monument materials allows me to teach the skills of analyzing and summarizing evidence already gathered before we worry about how to find the information in the first place.
This was the first year I used Monument to prep for LD. The briefs were extremely helpful. They were very well organized and included important arguments including how others could refute the argument… Thank you for all your work and your dedication to help us those are new to debating.
A Starting Place
I appreciate having a starting place so students aren’t starting from square one. They are able to understand how cases are put together by reading and learning from the cases you provide.
We use your briefs very frequently and they have helped us win rounds. Thanks for the quality content.
Monument is a critical tool to the success and development of our club. The tools and resources available are unmatched.
My First Stop for Prep
I’m always impressed with the quality of Monument’s content. This is always my first stop for speech and debate prep, both for my students and to better prepare myself for teaching.
Thousand Times Easier
You make teaching debate a thousand times easier. I would not coach a kid who didn’t have monument PERIOD. I don’t have time to reinvent the wheel every season!! Thank you
Timeliness of Membership
I appreciate the timeliness of the service. You seem to come up with good material just as I am looking. You must keep your staff busy going to tournaments or looking at news feeds 24/7!
Over My Head
As a first year team policy debater, I felt totally in over my head. I don’t know what I would do without Monument Publishing. I owe a lot of my success to you all and I will be a lifelong Monument user!
0 to 60 in a Flash!
Monument has taken my coaching from 0 to 60 in a flash! Our entire club has benefitted greatly from all the current season materials immensely… We’re getting loads of value from Monument and recommend them highly!
Thanks for providing all the information you do. It’s incredibly helpful.
NCFL Coach “Awesome”
Overall, awesome website. Extremely helpful for me and my students. I especially like the library to be able to look up topics that are to in my school’s database. Teaching various interps was easier this year because your site gives many examples of the speech types.
We opened up speech events to Member releases, along with opposition briefs in certain debate categories. Season 19 was a significant upgrade to Membership! Here's what Members said in 2019...
Two Years of Improvement
I’ve used Monument Members for the past two years, and the resources on their website helped me improve my debating record and argument quality.
Well Written and Researched
The resources released by Monument are thoroughly researched and well written…The Monument team provide an enjoyable and trusted resource during the debate and speech season.
Superb Customer Service
Monument is very well organized and the briefs that come out each week are easy to access and print out. We love that they are all uniformly formatted. Customer service is always superb!
A Life Saver
The commitment to weekly brief writing on this site is a life saver for me. I’m part of a very small club (only 2 others) so I don’t always have the most evidence on neg. Monument has allowed me to be far more prepared.
Actual Cases and Speeches
I love how Monument posts actual cases and speeches on the membership site. It has helped me learn so much!
Monument is a great resource. Briefs, speeches, cases, and information galore is what you will be blessed with once you become a member. I print/download all the cases/briefs that I can!
Without Monument I would not have known where to start! Having Monument was incredibly useful as a first year debater.
Weekly Debate Discussions
My student especially appreciates being able to discuss the weekly debate case over the breakfast table every Monday morning. Monument has made it easy to incorporate consistent and nutritionally bite size chunks of debate theory into my young student’s weekly schedule. Thank you!
Secrets to Success
Monument is a wonderful resource because all of the authors are past champions who are willing to share their secrets to success… Monument stays on top of weekly emails and continues to build on their unmatched level of source material.
World Schools Debater
The content and the offerings are an excellent value.
Purposeful and Useful
I really enjoy how much good quality content y’all put out. I feel like all of it is very purposeful and useful…not a ton of fluff.
Keep up the great work! We appreciate all you do to help equip us.
My Club, Monument
Monument is a huge help in my communications growth! I just switched to an event I had never competed in. I would be totally lost if I did not join Monument, mainly because I do not have a coach in this event. So Monument is my club!
Helpful, Organized, Professional
I love the help that Monument Members brings to my speech and debate career! They are so helpful and organized and professional. You can quote me 🙂
