Introduction to Debating
The 2017 "Introduction to Debating" night will once again be open to all students, parents, coaches and teachers that are all stakeholders in the QDU Darling Downs Regional Competition. Specifically targetting all new comers to debating, this night is designed to introduce everyone to what is expected from a debate.
What to do right and what to do wrong. Looking out for how to chair a debate and the role of a timekeeper.
The highlight of the evening will be a mock debate with "coached" students and an adjudication presented in a simple format by one of the QDU Executive members to point out the promotion and failings of each speaker and how they performed.
Parents are encouraged to bring along their Year 7 and Year 8 children to see what debating is all about and also to look at how they can begin their debating journey for the years to come.
Entry for all persons is free.
