This clear, engaging book is designed for three types of people:
those leading a debate team or class at a school or co-op
logic or upper-school teachers who want to create a truly dialectical environment
teachers who wish to enhance their teaching by including more robust discussion and debate
Everyday Debate & Discussion: A Guide to Socratic Conversation, Informal Discussion, and Formal Debate (Student Edition) not only shows students how to conduct informal and formal debates, but also how to develop good arguments by using solid logic and the resources available in their own thinking as well as the world around them. Students will employ the techniques of logic and rhetoric, such as the common topics of definition, comparison, relationship, circumstance, and testimony. Additional study of ethos, pathos, and style is also included, as well as a study of debate arrangement.
This is a consumable item.
