As a class lets watch an example of good and bad debate skills. Use the debate scorecard you'll use to score your peers to decide the winner of the debate linked below.
Use the rest of class to prepare for the debate. Remember the winner is usually the person who has prepared the most. Make sure to actually read out loud what you are going to say and time yourself. If you need a timer search for an online one.
Part 2 during your debate will be the question and answer section. Fill out the homework below to help you prepare for that.
