Week 8 – What Have I Learnt?

Developing Debating Skills (all ages)

In Lesson 8, we set individual targets to help us focus on what our strengths are and what we need to improve.

Debating teaches us lots of different things. It teaches us new skills, such as Rebuttal and Points of Information, and helps us improve skills such as teamwork, listening and confidence.

What are the top 3 things you have learnt or improved during your time with Debate Mate? Have a go at writing a PEEL speech about what you have learnt so far!

Below are some ideas of skills you could include:
– Structuring arguments/using the PEEL structure
– Rebuttal
– Offering Points of Information
– Listening to others
– Speaking with style
– Working as a team
– Speaking to new people
