Week 5 – POI Power

Developing Debating Skills (all ages)

In week 5, we learnt advanced Point of Information (POI) techniques and put them into practice.

Take a look at the video below about whether female sports stars should be paid the same as male sports stars.

Have a go at pausing the video and offering a POI to Ade! Use the pointers below to help:

  • Can we disagree with the examples he gives?
  • Can you attack the links he is making?
  • Can you think of any counter-examples to his points?

Challenge: Have a go at writing a PEEL speech for the motion “This house would pay male and female sports stars the same”.
