How a Mastermind works.

There’s a meeting once every two weeks for 90-120 minutes, covering three things:

1. A short lesson Isaiah wishes to emphasize

2. In-depth answers to questions debaters submit in advance

3. Answers to other questions on the call

Answers will consist of answers and often drills or roleplay helping the answer come to life. 

ONE mastermind will hold all LDers, another will hold all TPers. Parli students will be covered in either.

“Isaiah McPeak is one of the most effective coaches I’ve ever seen. He ignites intellectual curiosity and presses students to think, really think. His enthusiasm for teaching logic, reason and rhetoric has significantly influenced me as a coach, and has powerfully impacted my students.” 

– TJ Harding (debate coach, former Stoa board member)

What do you bring to a Mastermind?

We’ll really work on your exact challenge to help you take a giant leap (sometimes a big risk!) to get to the next level.
