Presentation on Debate Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Academic Debate Teaches Reading Comprehension Critical Thinking Organization Skills Effective Communication
  • 2.
    • When debating, teams explore arguments for and against a specific proposition
    • Debating can be an effective and practical learning tool
    • Debating allows several different qualities to emerge, including
        • collecting and organizing ideas,
        • evaluating ideas,
        • seeing logical connections between ideas,
        • adapting to new situations quickly and efficiently, and
        • speaking persuasively.
  • 3.
    • As the audience is acting as a judge in the debate, the debaters should remember a few rules:
        • The debater should not deliver too many facts in a short time.
        • The debater should present the information to the audience as a completed work, not short facts glued together.
        • The language used in a debate must be intelligible, free of jargon and clichés.
        • The speech must be clear, well-organized, and informative
        • Good use of transitions is the key to a good debate.
  • 4.
    • Debate is controversial and controversy often becomes heated. However, trying to attack opponents gains nothing.
    • Debaters should display courtesy and show respect for opponents and for the worth of ideas at all times.
    • It is not realistic to take a "right or wrong" attitude toward debate.
    • Speakers should never forget that a good debate is an honest attempt to provide the audience with two different answers to the question asked in the proposition.
  • 5.
    • Students will be divided into two groups, each with 12 students.
    • Each group will divide itself into two teams (6 members each): one team will support the proposition (the affirmative team). The other team will oppose the proposition (the negative team).
    • When one group is debating, the members of the other group will act as judges.
    • First, a member of the affirmative team will speak for 2 minutes after which s/he will be cross-examined by three members of the negative team (one question each) (8m) .
    • Next, a member of the negative team will also speak for 2 minutes and will also be cross-examined by three members of the opponent team (one question each) (8m) .
    • A rebuttal will then take place, first by a member of the affirmative team talking for 2 minutes and them by a member of the negative teach also talking for 2 minutes (4m).
    • The audience will then have 5 minutes to ask questions to both teams (5m).
    • Following that, a different member of each team will have 2 minutes to make a closing statement, first a member from the affirmative group, then a member from the negative group (4m).
    • The audience will then vote to determine which team won the debate (1m).
    • The TOTAL TIME for the entire debate should be between 30 to 35 minutes as a few extra minutes will be spent for the transition between speakers.
  • 6.
    • How well did the speakers communicate their ideas?
    • How much information did the speakers know about their topic?
    • Were the team members polite?
    • Did the second speaker on each team build on what the first team member had said?

    • Each group will be given a proposition.
    • Research is crucial.
    • Researching and learning specific vocabulary is equally crucial.

    • Marriage is arguably losing its appeal, claim many social scientists. Divorce is on the increase and statistics show that one out of every three marriages end in divorce. Hold a classroom debate on the following proposition:
