The league most popular in American schools that Monument Publishing caters specifically to is the NSDA (National Speech and Debate Association). Formerly called the National Forensic League, the NSDA has contributed to speech and debate since 1925. Other leagues have adopted similar rules and events of the NSDA including the Urban Debate League, the National Catholic Forensic League, the University Interscholastic League, and many more.
Monument Publishing supports the NSDA and any other speech and debate league that finds our materials helpful. This page has information helpful to school teachers, coaches, administrators and students.

Classrooms and Clubs
Monument Publishing sells teacher editions and "club starter packages." These are helpful for speech and debate programs, especially when introducing students to the detailed complications of forensic events. Consider our flagship publications carefully when building your speech and debate curriculum.
For a list of all our products, see our store.
Teachers are not permitted to purchase one membership for their entire classroom or squad. However, MonumentMembers.com does provide a weekly "coaches" download that gives targeted permission to one of the membership's downloads for that week. Teachers are welcome and encouraged to distribute these downloads as they see fit: https://monumentmembers.com/content/xtra/coaches/
Encourage your students (or their parents) to become Monument Members. They will definitely be empowered to succeed in their events.
Though Monument Publishing produces resources for religious leagues and often covers material that address political topics (especially in extemp and debate), Monument Publishing does not publish resources for NSDA with reference to any specific religion or group. Monument Publishing considers itself nonsectarian for all NSDA-related resources.
