Introduction to Debating (all ages)
In Lesson 3 we learnt how to structure our arguments using PEEL.
Point – The headline of your argument in a short, snappy sentence
Explain – This is where you explain your argument in detail, remember to keep asking yourself why!
Example – Give an example that supports your argument, this could be a fact, statistic or an anecdote (this is an example based on real life, you can use your own experiences!)
Link – Summarise your argument and link it back to the motion
Let’s have a go at putting PEEL into practice for If I Ruled the World… Print out the speech sheet below and create a PEEL speech about what you would do if you ruled the world! If you don’t have access to a printer, why not create your own version of the sheet!
