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 debate format
  • Break into two teams
  • Team brainstorming
  • Initial arguments and introduction of topic from each team
  • Each team makes a point or counters the other team's point
  • Conclusion from each team

After the debate, there will be time for feedback.

      Hi, the cross streets are 55th and 56th. We usually debate two topics, each topic lasting about 45 minutes.

      As Thomas stated last time, We usually don't disclose the debate topics beforehand because the objective is to be able to organize your ideas extemporaneously. That being said, the topics are usually selected from recent news events, so most people will have some baseline knowledge.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
