Service Description

SPRING Time - Introduction to Debating (10 SESSIONS) Please read "How the Programme Runs" before booking Debate Mate's Debating Sessions focus on building all the fundamental skills necessary to debate using a range of group activities and games, alongside some individual learning. Students are able to practise and develop their ability to generate and construct arguments, listen to others, respond to interruptions and offer constructive challenges. There are several debates built into the course to prepare students for the final debate competition. Debate Mate has a unique (and effective!) approach to debating, so all students who have not taken part in a Debate Mate program start here. Don’t worry, our curriculum is specially designed to push students who have experience to ensure they are appropriately challenged. Lesson Plan One: Get to know your squad and explore ways to skillfully make an argument. Two: Exploring different speaking styles and building an impactful speech Three: The art of structuring a strong and clear argument Four: The art of rebuttal - how to challenge and respond to the arguments of others Five : Full Debate:Students will implement all of the skills developed from the previous sessions by participating in a full formal debate.
