Week 9 – Take Note!

Mastering Debating 1 (all ages)

In Lesson 9, we practiced our active listening skills. Listening is so important during a debate as it allows us to offer strong rebuttals and points of information.

Watch the video below with a pen and paper to hand. Try and note down as many key points as possible whilst listening to the conversation between Greta Thunberg and Sir David Attenborough.

Once you have watched the video once and made notes, watch the video for a second time and see if you missed any key information.

Listening to speeches and making notes is a skill like any other, it needs to be practiced!
