SPECIAL REPORT: National Forensic Association Report on Pedagogy —2010. The document features descriptive analysis of prerogatives for collegiate forensics pedagogy organized in two tiers. Each section is fashioned as a series of “statements of purpose.” The term purpose, in this regard, is related to roots and motivations for teaching. This document recognizes the shaping of best practices in forensics pedagogy as a central goal for the collegiate forensics community. The full measure of the components in each tier work to shape the purpose of teaching and coaching practices that resist replication of past performances and move toward speechmaking and performance development founded in the root principles and rhetorical foundations celebrated in the scholarly and professional study of human communication. A third tier that would address each event individually is strongly suggested during the course of future development.
