NYC Debate Meetup

  • Dec 9, 2012 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi everyone, both newcomers and experienced debaters are welcome to join. We meet at a table in the Sony Public Atrium on Madison between 55th & 56th St. There will be a sign displayed on the table so you can find us.

The typical meeting is structured as follows:

  • Introductions
  • Overview of the debate format
  • Debate topic announced
  • Break into two teams
  • Team brainstorming
  • Opening statement from each team
  • Each team makes a supporting argument or rebuts the other team's point
  • Closing statement from each team

After the debate, there will be time for feedback.

Join or login to comment.

    Good, I'll be there, I have to say YES I'm going to attend in any page?? Because I didn't find it.

      It is not mandatory to say Yes. But if you do, it helps moderators to have a rough estimate of how many people will come. There is usually a red "RSVP" button on the right side of the page where you can say "Yes" (yes, you are attending.)
