Winter Wonderland - Secondary Debate

11-13 years


Join us for some lively discussions this Winter in our new Secondary Debate workshops. With the presidential elections now over, what style would students take - Trump, Biden or something else?

Over the two sessions, students will have plenty of opportunity to discuss and debate a range of topics. 

In Secondary Debate students will:

  • Analyse language and body language from real debates such as the presidential debates
  • Construct arguments using persuasive language and engaging sentence openers
  • Learn about tone of voice and vocal delivery during a debate 
  • Enhance speaking confidence
  • Practise rebuttals
  • Learn how to research for a debate  in an effective manner
  • Practise taking notes during a debate to form the basis of another argument 
  • Put skills into practice with small group and class debates

Classes are taught in English across our sites.
