Middle School Debate

Todd Said:

Is It Possible To Start A Debate Team In Middle School ?

We Answered:

Hi, you should try to first get the idea approved by your principal and then you would have to find a teacher sponsor. This would have to be a person who can dedicate their time to come to all the meetings and organize which tournaments you could go to. You would also need to get more people to join the team to make it possible :)

Manuel Said:

What is a good middle school appropriate book that would lead to a debate?

We Answered:

The Giver by Lois Lowry. Has a lot of dystopian concepts in it. The whole idea of euthanasia would be a great debate.

The Burn Journals by Brent Runyon...true account of his attempted suicide by setting himself of fire. Brent tells the story of his recovery.

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit could spark an interesting discussion about the pros and cons of immortality.

The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B Cooney. Janie wakes up from her normal suburban life when she discovers her picture posted as a missing child on a milk carton.

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card...futuristic dystopian society where children are sent to battle school to defeat an alien threat.

The Death Penalty for Teens by Nancy Day....It's an overview of the death penalty, but also enphasizes teen criminals. There's always A Time to Kill by John Grisham...but that might not be entirely appropriate for 8th's about the trial of a man accused of killing the men who raped his daughter.

Claire Said:

i need a middle school debate format?

We Answered:

use Google.

Really, is it so hard to Google "debate format" that you'd rather type up information about your life we don't care about that takes longer to type than those two words and have us Google the term for you and then tell you the answer?

And my friends still don't understand why I have no hope for the future of humanity.....
