Event Overview: The premier's debating challenge year 11 and 12 final will showcase NSW DEC senior secondary debating teams discussing issues of contemporary significance. The competition will be held in The Great Hall of Sydney University and will take the form of a one hour debate with both sides having a choice from three topics.
The activity enhances the ability of students to respond in a short period of time to a set topic in a meaningful fashion and to work as part of a team arguing either an Affirmative or Negative case. Students will learn about how adjudicators judge the debates and they will have a chance to ask questions directly of the adjudicators based on the debating adjudication form provided to them.
During the debate through Edmodo, they will also have the opportunity to post their opinions and thoughts of the debate.
