Week 8 – Refining Advanced Skills


Mastering Debating 2 (all ages)

Before our debate in lesson 8, we recapped the key skills we have learnt this term.

This included:
Conceding arguments
Burdens
Famous speaking styles
Teamwork
Language in motions

Your task is to pick one of these skills and create a poster about it. You should include things such as:

  • What the skill is
  • What activity we played to practice it
  • Why it is important in debating
  • How it helps us win debates
  • How difficult it is
  • Examples of when you have used the skill

By really thinking about the skills we have learnt so far this term, you will be able to understand them better and use them in the final debates this term!
