Novice Textbook Needed

There is a serious lack here. I find that instead of a text I can use a
series of hand-outs and short readings as a part of novice training. I
would be glad to send our 115 page packet to any coach who is interested
and sends me a mailing address and can wait a couple of weeks.
The CEDA Program Guide is also a good place to look. Check out the ceda
http://debate.uvm.edu/ceda.html for a link to it.
Muir's text, so recently publicized, is also a good one. Look in the
Emporium section of Debate Central.
