Rules of Debate
Debate procedures and tips
As a debater and a judge... this video was correct, while funny. First of all, it is using what I call "old debate-" debate based on the SHITS system- and secondly, I do not agree at all with the oral critique standards- debaters don't usually time it, I prefer disclosure, and it should be a conversation- debaters should ask questions and learn from the round.
Host a friendly classroom debate with your students. This activity can be incorporated into any subject area that requires students to have a comprehensive understanding of a particular topic. A fun activity for all involved, and a great way to get students talking!
