Debate tip of the week: Be Prepared
Before you start a debate, you should always know what you're getting yourself into. If you can, do your research, make sure you have all the materials you need, make sure you understand what the topic is about and what the rules of the debate are. There's nothing worse than turning up to a debate only to realize you've done all your preparation for the wrong side!
Some examples of websites which might be able to help you prepare for debates:
- The EDEB8.com search pages can help you find similar debates see how other debaters have tackled the topic - and how successful they were.
- Our debate forum has many experienced debaters who'd be very happy to help you with your debate. You can also get a coach to help you out.
- Debating tips are found all around the net and are good to revise before any big event, just to remember what you need to look out for.
- Debating resources are very useful for improving your style and content, making sure you're at the top of your game before the debate.
- This blog - you're in the right place! The debate resources blog is filled with useful advice (hopefully), so take a browse around.
In addition - particularly for unprepared debates, make sure you read the news and be informed about current events (esp. any social movements or international issues).
