What is Debate?

Debate is formal arguing.

Debating is a great way to hone children’s techniques for making their points, expand their vocabulary and boost their confidence, both in general and public speaking.

 

During a debate session, children will learn skills associated with public speaking and formal arguing; such as how to persuade others to their point of view, challenge someone else's opinion appropriately and defend their own. They will also face the challenge of arguing for a point which they actually disagree with, in order to better understand both sides of an argument. 

 

On a week to week basis, the topics will vary based on what is important to the students; be that 'zoos should be banned', to 'schools should get rid of uniform'. The first few weeks will be taken up with learning the skills for debating through various focused games designed to impart strategies.
