Class Debate Series: Debate Teams, Dates and Structure

Over the last few weeks we have been working towards the formal class debate series with a range of workshops and activities aimed at getting everyone up in front of an audience and exploring a range of techniques of persuasion. Today we agreed on the formal debate format we’ll be following

Debate 1: Tourism is a Plague in Wanaka

Debate 2: The Speed Limit Should be Raised

Debate 3: Homework Should be Banned

Debate 4: School Should be Optional for People Over the Age of 14
