Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great vacation. We started with our second round of debates in our first class of the new year.
This week, there was an improvement in debate skills, especially with using opinion and refuting expressions. I noticed that more debaters were better prepared for this debate. For next week's debates, remember these points:
Blog Question #9:
If you were a presenter, answer this question:
Do you think you improved for your second debate (e.g. worksheet and performance)? Why or why not?
If you were an audience member, answer this question:
Give your opinion on one of the topics you listened to in today’s lesson. Remember to choose a position (for or against), give a reason and an example for your opinion.
* Write 12-15 sentences.
* Use capital letters, punctuation and spelling correctly.
* Submit by Monday, January 11 by 6:00pm.
