Discover Debate makes discussion and debate skills accessible, fun, and exciting.
The authors break down the complex thinking, speaking, and listening skills used in debate into several clear, bite-size skills — each skill easily digested by low-level learners within one lesson period.
Focusing on both the skills and the language strategies beginners need for self-expression, the book moves students gradually from simply stating an opinion, to explaining, supporting, and organizing an opinion.
Then, students learn how to examine, question, and refute opinions. Ultimately, students are ready to support, defend, and refute opinions in a debate setting.
Each unit follows a six-step learner-friendly format: Discovery, Model, Language Focus, Controlled Practice, Debate Application, and Project. Discover debate and rediscover dialog!
