English Debate Academy IN calling for next year

Hi everyone,

The English Debate Academy Instituto Nacional has opened the selection process for 9th graders, 10th graders and 11th graders for next year. This is a very rigorous process in which students have to discuss a controversial topic and defend their point. Even though the students are not selected by the win-lose criterion, you have to perform a good speech about the topic, and that is the reason to be chosen. You have to know beforehand, that the academy requires a lot of time for planning, practicing and going to different tournaments.
People who belong to another school (even girls) are also allowed to participate in the academy, but they have to represent our school if chosen for any tournament.

To be selected, you have to pass 2 evaluations: Speak from 1 to 2 minutes about the topic below (20 students to be chosen),

”This House Would ban mobile phones in schools”

the second evaluation is a real debate where 10 people are going to be selected to be part of the next years’ debate academy.

You could defend either proposition or opposition team. The selection process is done in two sessions for the morning shift:

1.- Proposition or opposition speech. (Assesses: Style, Arguments, English language, and Delivery) 10th December at 14:10.
2.- Impromptu debate: 2 improvised teams one prop and the other opp. (Assesses: Style, Arguments, English language, and Delivery). 17th December at 14:10.

and for the afternoon shift:

1.- Proposition or opposition speech. (Assesses: Style, Arguments, English language, and Delivery) 14th December at 12:45
2.- Impromptu debate: 2 improvised teams one prop and the other opp. (Assesses: Style, Arguments, English language, and Delivery). 21st December at 12:45
