By the end of this lesson, we will: * Extend knowledge by analsying our prior concepts of a debate in terms of structure, speakers’ roles, and rules. * Learn to structure what is going to be learned and transform it into our learning goals.
* Work in pairs or groups of three. Compare our examples and find which debate example(s) is/are more influential than the others and why. * What are the features of an influential debate topic?
What are the underlying principles that determine a debate more influential than others? Tip: The debates which cast a more influential effect on audience include features, such as: * that go in many peoples’ interests. * that are significant, i.e. the topics are community or world concerns. * that are built upon most recent, relevant supporting information.
List all the facts about what a common school debate is like. What is the format? What is the structure? Who are the participants? What are the speaker’s roles? What are the rules? What are the terms generally used in debating? Let’s roll the clips
* Listing: Ask students to tell what they know before the clip and have seen after the clip. List all the points or ideas. * Grouping: Ask students if they think any of the points/ideas belong together. Find out similarity as a basis for grouping items. * Labeling: Ask students what they would call these groups they have formed and why they would group them together. Give a label(s) that encompass(es) all ideas. * Regrouping: Ask if some of these belong in more than one group. Guide students to think about if they can put these same ideas in different groups and why they would group them that way. Encourage students to state different relationships. * Synthesising: Ask students to say in one sentence about all these groups. Synthesise the information by summarising the data and forming generalisations.

Take-home Job 1. Work in their debating teams of three. 2. Search for an article on a social/world issue or anything that will be of interest to the class. 3. Be prepared to make a brief oral report on it, together with a team statement -- how the team thinks about the issue.
