What is debate?
Everyone has engaged in debating at some point, from childish squabbles to barroom discussions of philosophical import.
Debate is about argument and persuasion. You try to prove that your arguments on your side of the proposition are more convincing.
Debate is a battle of verbal skill. Yet, it is not simply a case in which participants hurl at each other whatever missiles come their way.
Debate is a process of advocacy and inquiry which involves reasoning, logic, common sense. It gives debaters an opportunity for critical thinking, decision making and problem solving.
Debate is fun and challenging. You will certainly enjoy the process as you embark on your journey at Debate Director.
