Event Overview: The Premier's Debating Challenge year 9 and 10 final will showcase NSW DEC debating teams discussing issues of contemporary significance. The competition will be held in the William Wilkins Gallery and will take the form of a one hour debate with both sides having a choice of 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. Students will also be able to participate in online discussions during the debate by logging into our Edmodo group.

Dial in- 11:15am
Break time- 12:30-12:40pm
End time: 1:15pm

This curriculum-linked workshop will provide a unique opportunity for students to develop their ability to understand what makes a strong debate. They will hear directly from adjudicators as to how the outcomes of debates are decided and will have the chance to learn from highly accomplished debating teams who work well as part of a team arguing either an Affirmative or Negative case.
