We are again preparing to participate in a debating competition organised by Monaghan Education Centre.
Have a look at our blog from last year, there are tips and advice, as well as websites to check out.
thenoisyclassroom This website has video clips of children debating, as well as judges giving feedback, so you know what they are looking for.
The topic for next week's debate is "Shops should not display Christmas decorations until December 1st".
Remember to look at the argument from both sides to get a better perspective.
