Debating.

Postby Luigi_Freak_The_23rd » Thu Oct 30, 2008 9:50 pm

I think we should Debate about issues in the world today. The debating I'm thinking I'm thinking of is Sparing. Sparing stands for Spontaneous Argumentation. But since Spar is usually with speaking, and since we can't speak in a forum... this is the way I think we should debate if we do debate on the forum.


In debate, you will talk and argue about a topic given to us (we don't know wha the topic is until we're all ready to go). We'd figure out who was debateing for the topic (Aff) or against the topic (Neg), then we'd get the topic and start.

Topic are cut into 4 categories:


Economy
Oil
Wall-Street
Natural Fuels
War


Political
Election
Congress
President's policies
War
Voting


Social
Sports
Teen issues
ect.


Abstract
Really dunb topics like "Green is better then Blue" or "Night is better then day" kind of stuff




This is how I think it should work on a forum.

Both Affirmative and Negitive both come up with points saying why we should or shouldn't do this one thing. I think Aff goes first. After coming up with points you write a speech about it saying explaining these points and why they are right or something.

After both type and post there Speeches, they go up and ask eachother questions about there points.

After a while of questioning... it stops.... :D:

After it stops, Neg stand up and gives his points again and tells you why they're right, and gives the opponents speech, and say why his points are wrong.

After Neg, Aff gives his points again, explains why they're right, goes over his opponents points, say why they're wrong.

And then we're done ^^

There are going to need to be judges (3 of them) watching the thread and decide who won the debate after it's done.

It won't solve anything, but it's fun ^^

If some of you don't get it, LaTerry and I could do a topic and show you how it's done... and also see if all this works out.

... So what do you guys think, I really think we should try it out...

Rather difficult to do in a forum setting, but worth a shot.

Well yeah... but if we do do it, here what I think should happen

10 Minute Prep time.

In Prep time you choose wheither you're Neg or Aff. Then you write your Three points and write a speech about it. you have to finish up your speech after 10 minutes are up.

Both Post speeches

20 minute Clash.

We question eachother a bunch about their points and what they said about them. One question and one answer a post.

After that, they give their Points again and tell them why there points are right and tell why the other's points are wrong.

I think it should take an hour at most...

It would probably be easier in Chat, but that can be a little unpredictable at times.
