Week 4 – Advanced Preparation with PERMS


Mastering Debating 1 (all ages)

In Lesson 4, we completed a debate on the topic Human Rights.

When preparing for a debate, PERMS is a useful tool to help us come up with lots of different arguments.

To recap, PERMS stands for:

Political
Economical
Religious/Race
Moral
Social

We can use these categories to help us think of arguments when we are given a motion. Have a look at the Motion Sheet below and have a go at coming up with arguments for the motions!
