Debate is a structured classroom practice in which two sides take opposing viewpoints regarding a discussed topic or value. Student opposing debate groups try to persuade the classroom audience to support a particular argument. Each debate team must present their own arguments and refute the arguments of the opponent student team. Debating requires students to think critically and support statements with meaningful, substantive or factual information.
Debate allows students to clarify their positions while understanding and learning about different perspectives. Debates develop listening and speaking skills, and allow students to practice presentation skills.
