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.

      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.)
