-Joseph Joubert Debate Tactics Begin Strong, End Stronger It's important to start debating on the right foot. In the first minute, have a few of your main points breifly mentioned and your opponent's weaknesses identified.
Your conclusion should be strong and should emphasize two or three of your strongest arguments Be Ready Anticipate your opponent's arguments
Know your weaknesses and strenghthen them
Brainstorm an arsenal of counter attacks before the debate Repeat, Restate, Reiterate Repeat important points
Make sure you're clear Debates are for challenging ideas, not attacking one another
Maintain eye contact with the audience, it keeps them interested.
Speak slowly, loudly and clearly.
Cue cards are always a good idea, as long as you don’t read from them.
