Have you been thinking of a debate club for our school? If you agree with me, I think my teacher and classmates want one too! That’s why we should have a debate club!
First of all, the reason why we should have a debate club is to improve our writing. For example, Mrs. Vilas wanted us to write a persuasive essay. She said we have to pick a topic that me and another person disagree with. This is what I mean: I think that kids should wear uniform but, Kiara thinks that kids shouldn’t wear uniform. If our school had a debate club, then we would be experts on writing in high school. That’s why having a debate club is important!
Secondly, our school should have a debate club to improve our public speaking! For example, the third, fourth, and fifth graders participated in saying one of Martin Luther King’s speeches. Some of them needed some improvement. In order to improve our public speaking, we have to say what is our opinion of the topic we are writing and say it to the whole class. With a debate club it will be so much easier for us to speak in public.
Thirdly, having a debate club in our school can help us in the NJ ASK. For example, if our school had a debate club, students may have to do research for some facts in their debate. So while the students are researching, they might find some facts that they may need in the NJ ASK. They can also use their schematas to remember the facts that they once researched to put on their writing.
So that’s why I think we should have a debate club in our school. Now it’s your turn! Do you think your school should have a debate club?
