January Update

January 1, 2017

To kick off the New Year the topics chosen for debate bent towards the more abstract. Topics such as “Does God Exist?” and “Which Superpower is the Best?” were explored, challenging students and volunteers alike! Argument structure and refuting the opponent’s points were pushed as deciding factors when judging a debate. The students took these concepts to heart, incorporating numbering points and clash into their rounds.
