Debating tryouts will be next Tuesday (21st March) at lunchtime. Any student who would like to tryout for the team is welcome to do so.
They must choose one of the following three topics:
- Children should be able to choose their own bedtime.
- Pokemon cards should be allowed in schools.
- Animals should not be kept in cages.
They then must choose a position: affirmative (for) or negative (against).
Speeches should go for 2-3 minutes. Students should apply what they learnt in class about the structure of a debate (of course there won’t be any rebuttals as they are debating by themselves!).
Good luck to all those who are having a go!
Any questions, ask below.
