The past few days in class we have been working with debating. What is debating, what happens when you debate, and what does “debate” even mean?
We have learned that when you debate it basically means that you have a topic, you do research and you argue about that special thing. It’s also good if we give examples and give sources.
We have been divided in 2 groups and the day before we needed to study both pros and cons about our main topic. Whenever we have time we would sit in a line and talk about it. We are though NOT ALLOWED to research/go on the internet at the same time that the debate is happening! We do our best to talk as a group and to let everyone be part of the debate which I (Maya) think we are succeeding very well with. Each time we give an example or gives a source we get 1 point. If you give a very good point about your argument you have a chance that you can get 2 points. The team with the most points win the round.
How do we decide who starts?
1 person from each team do rock, paper, scissors up to 1, the team that wins gets to start… AND pick what thing they want to argue about, for example
Say the category is Dogs VS Cats! There is team A and team B, 1 person from team A and 1 person from team B do rock, paper, scissor and team B wins. Team B then gets to pick if they want to go against cats or if they want to go against dogs.
