NCFCA announces changes to Apologetics

Teresa Hudson, president of the NCFCA announced changes to the up-coming speech season. last Sunday (question for the webmaster: can we get an RSS for News feed?).

Included in the announcement was a “reworking” of the Apol topics. She writes,

In recent years, many of you have requested a reassessment of one of our most loved events, Apologetics. As a result of that review, Apologetics will be undergoing some reworking of the subject matter in order to provide fresh research topics for those that have been participating in the event up to this point and to cover ground not previously addressed in the first edition of topics. The revised topics will be available on the NCFCA website by early August. Because all the categories and topics are worthy of study, we will leave the existing question list up until the new list is ready to post.

Most of you know that I was included in the many who “requested a reassessment” (actually, I requested a full-on revision, but “baby steps to the elevator“). So for those of you who are wondering, no, the up-coming changes aren’t mine. But in the past few weeks, we did have a couple conversations/e-mail exchanges about how to improve the event that went really well.

We’ll have to wait and see how the changes turn out. Personally, I think it’ll be good.

When the updated list is released, I’ll try to get some notes up for you all.

In the mean time, what do you think? Which topics would you like to see added? Removed? Kept? If you were in charge, what would you do?
