Debating Roles Poster

1 page|Grade: 2 - Upper

A poster explaining the role of speakers in a debating team.

Speaker 1
Start by stating your side’s argument. The rest of your opening statement should summarise why your position is the strongest. Focus on 3 solid points that appeal to the audience’s sense of reason and emotion.

Speaker 2
Your job is to gather as much evidence as you can to support your team’s argument. Consider the possible arguments that your opponents might use against you. Rely on expert
opinions, quotes and facts to support your argument.

Speaker 3
You are in charge of concluding remarks. Start by summarising the reasons why your argument is the best and restate the 3 main points your team has made. Include the audience in your remarks and end on a strong emotional point.
