Impromptu Debate Tutorial

Author: Wendy Meister-Louria

To provide students with the information they need to participate in the end of the semester impromptu debates.

Students participate in a mini impromptu debate tournament. Two sets of  debaters receive resolutions when they enter the room and have seven minutes to prepare arguments and present them to a judging panel of their peers.  Two debates occur simultaneously and are run by a students head judge and timer(s). This activity is the culmination of all the skills debaters have learned thoughout the semester in argumentation and debate.
