Resources for Teachers

The IDEA Guide to the 2012 U.S. Presidential Debates is an educational resource for use in classrooms and by debate clubs. Hard copies are no longer availble for free order, but you can download the book digitally and FREE OF CHARGE - here.

To accompany the Guide and this website, we have created a packet of 15 lesson plans, for free use.
