  • Know various terms such as: Debating, Debate, Arguments, Argumentation, Opposition, Government, Debate Club
  • Give reasons for decisions, in oral and written form.
  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Variety of transitions when presenting your point of view.

Complete the following activities:

Form a team of three people.

2. Get familiar with a topic for debate
You will get a topic for debate and your team will need to take a clear position for or against the proposed issue.

3. Find and present your arguments
You will need to find as many arguments as possible to support your position and write them down in the Worksheet 3: Debate worksheet. The arguments are presented to the other group.

4. Self-/Peer-Assessment
At the end of the practice debate, you will need to rate yourself and a partner using the Worksheet 4: Self-/Peer-Assessment.
