When we started we had to pick a debate project. My group (Caitlyn, Kevin, Sam and I) was the first picked and we chose should we be more focused on underwater exploration or space exploration?
We focused on researching. At first I thought we should explore underwater. I soon changed my mind. When we started to prepare for our first debate everybody wanted to be on space side. Sam wasn’t there so we all researched space.
When we started practicing debating we switched around a lot though Sam was always on oceans side. When it came to our first finale debate it was me and Caitlyn against Kevin and Sam.
The first time we debated there wasn’t a camera so we don’t have a video. Some of our feedback was be louder, be more passionate, your first reason doesn’t make sense, more rebuttals etc.
We had a lot to work on…
Since some of our feedback was we needed better rebuttals we did some research. It took a lot of time but eventually we had better rebuttals for all of their reasons.
We only had time to practice once and it didn’t go well. We kept getting distracted and we didn’t even finish.
Here is our debate-
I think I was a little nervous and also fiddled a lot. Also Sam had done his first two reasons before we did our first. Overall I think it was a success!
