Transcript of Preparing for Debate

What do you want people to believe? That's your thesis. "People should drink Coca Cola because it's better than Pepsi.
Write your thesis (also called a claim or resolution)
Preparing for Debate
Discuss your research with your group. What evidence or data do you have to support your resolution? Like last week, choose your top 2 points. Have one person expand data for each point until you have 2 paragraph.
Review your research
Discuss what you think your opponents #1 point will be. This time, you will not actually ask them for their information.

You have to use the knowledge gained from your research to "guess" their best point.

Choose one person to write a paragraph that both explains their #1 point AND why we should believe that that point is wrong.
What will they say?
When you've finished your paragraphs, make the connection. This is called the "warrant."

"A good cola is not only refreshes you and quenches your thirst, but also makes you remember what it was like to be young. Coca Cola does all of that in more. You should drink Coca Cola because it is much better than Pepsi.
Make the Connection
You just wrote your affirmative or negative speech!

Let's go step-by-step through a debate.
