Encouragement for Speech & Debate

Ken Davis at Training Minds Camp

Ken Davis is one of several people who have encouraged me to continue "training minds for action." He's pictured here (left) in August with me at our Training Minds Camp in Estes Park.

I want to list a few people who have encouraged me to encourage you. I suppose everyone who leads a charge can point to certain people who were encouraging. Here are some endorsements I’ve received for Jeub’s Guide to Homeschool Speech & Debate:

1. Ken Davis, Dynamic Communicators Workshops

I met Ken last year, and we hit it off. He likewise “trains minds for action” but with business professionals, pastors, and the like through his DCW program. Here’s what he has to say about my book…

In a world where communication is essential for success in life and so many students have difficulty with even the simplest forms of expression, Chris Jeub provides the kind of foundational guidelines that lead to excellence. Jeub’s Guide to Homeschool Speech and Debate is more than a guide to help students win contests. It will enable students to excel at life.

2. Cody Herche, NCFCA Title Winner in Extemp and Team-Policy

Cody has been a Training Minds Coach since he took top titles in 2006. He’s currently a JD student at Cornell Law School. He’s published several books through Monument Publishing and has been a tremendous edition to the work we do. His words are incredibly encouraging:

Chris Jeub has dedicated years of his life into sharpening the minds of young communicators. His publications helped me get started as a competitor and continue to compass students through the speech and debate sport. Jeub’s Guide to Homeschool Speech and Debate is a great starting point for any forensics competitor and I highly recommend it.

3. Mark Mittelberg, International Author and Speaker

Mark and his wife, Heidi, started sending their son to camp in 2007. Last year he was the #1 Lincoln-Douglas debater and title winner of Persuasive. Mark had these kind words to say about the guide:

I don’t know of any better activity for educating our students than speech and debate, and I can’t think of a better way to get started than through Chris Jeub’s guidebooks, classes, and camps — I highly recommended them!

There are other endorsements from coaches, homeschool leaders, competitors and alumni of our programs. The words are so encouraging. Their words — accompanied with these free books — are sure to encourage families.

  • Theresa Ip Froehlich

    Chris, Thank you for what you do to teach homeschoolers in speech and debate. I homeschooled our children during the highschool years and tried to get them interested in speech and debate. I didn’t succeed, but I served as a judge (I served in their “minister’s slot since I’m an ordained minister) for those debates for a number of years. Speech and debate teach young people so many skills besides communication. When the opportunity comes up, I’m going to share your free book with my friends who are still homeschooling.

      Judging speech and debate rounds is one of the most enjoyable things to do, isn’t it? Especially those final rounds of events like Humorous or Duo, they’re incredibly entertaining. And the debate rounds are incredible. Thanks for serving in this, Coach!
