Debating Speaking Notes Poster


A poster with notes on how to speak well during a debate.

Debating notes:

  • Scan around the audience making eye contact with them.
  • Use a loud clear voice. Don’t talk too fast and use expression in your voice to make your speech more interesting.
  • Use hand gestures when appropriate. Don’t hold your palm cards up in front of your face.
  • Stand still. Try not to rock back and forth or shuffle from foot to foot.

  • I love this resource. Can I request an addition? I would love a graphic organiser for each member of the debating team, i.e, what is the structure for each speaker. Thank you!
