Welcome to Monument Publishing! I'm Chris Jeub, the owner of Monument Publishing, and welcome to our website.
Our purpose: to create resources that help make speech and debate simple and successful. I work with appoximately 50 coaches and champion speakers every year to pull together the best resources for the next season of competitors.
Want to be a part of this? Here are some quick links to help you dive in:
Please allow me to tell you about me, this business, our color-coordinated way of doing things, and how you are on the road to experiencing some of the most exciting training opportunities available to homeschoolers.
I'm Chris Jeub, father to 16 beautiful children, residing with most of them in Monument, Colorado. We are avidly involved in homeschool forensics. We travel to tournaments, help out at tournaments, judge and compete at tournaments -- we can't get enough of tournaments!
Why do we love this so much? That's simple. While we're stretching ourselves, having fun, playing frisbee between rounds and meeting all sorts of neat people across the country, we are doing something that I believe is one of the most important things a person should do: training the mind for action.
That's what my wife, Wendy, and I strive to do every day with our children. And we invite you along for the ride!
Now, even more specifically is the list of curriculum you are about to buy. We publish for various speech and debate leagues, particularly Stoa and the NCFCA (click through these links for each of their websites). Both of these leagues release debate resolutions, write speech and debate rules for the year, and host national tournaments in June.
Monument Publishing hires the nation's best coaches and former competitors to write the curriculum for league participants. Now, both these leagues consist of homeschool families, not your typical speech and debate extrodinairs. That's what makes our material so awesome! We target the novice student just starting off, and their accompanying parent who hasn't a clue how to get going.
Overall, our philosophy is this: every homeschooler should be doing speech and debate. Seriously. All two million of them. It's the most exciting thing around, and there is something for everyone (see next point). Besides, our world really needs good, articulate, grounded kids to take on the problems it faces. That includes you and your family. I'm convinced of it!
The competencies are pretty easy to understand when you peruse the site. We color coordinate according to the events we write for:
