Debate Club by Mamoun (Year 7)

 

Hello, I am Mamoun and today I will be talking about debate club. Debate club is a club where you basically argue, but in a fancy way. For me, a really talkative human, I find it great. So here is how it works. First, you sign up then you are put into a team where you must argue or debate about that specific thing or subject. You must try to beat and go around the argument of your opposition. You have 10 minutes to get ready with your team, thinking about who will make the opening statements, the closing statements and what you’re going to say.

A recent debate that we had is if Trump should be removed from social media. We did this all online and I did not see a difference – you can raise your hand online and speak normally just like you would offline and it is still the amazing debate club. The thing is with debate club, you’re talking about a subject you agree with and sometimes a subject you don’t agree with, which is why debate club is so great. There is a saying that a genius is someone who can talk about something he does not agree with and something he agrees with. Well that’s all I have for you today, hopefully you decide to join the amazing debate club!
