Which do you prefer? Personally, I like the idea of public speaking better, but that's just because I haven't tried debate.

Like it!


message 5: by l (new)

l I don't like formal debating. I tried it last year, and it was a bit too...unnatural for my taste. What I would find better is if we could use an informal speech layout and just take turns speaking.

Leah | 3478 comments Mod
That would be good. What was the name of your event? Is your school part of the NFL?

message 12: by Alison (new)

Alison (Alison_loves_books) | 12 comments Debate helps my public speaking. It gives me confidence to share and discuss my ideas. So I like both...

That's cool...haven't thought of it that way before. :)


message 14: by Gigi (new)

Gigi | 1 comments I think public speaking. I like debating as well, but I prefer having time to collect my thoughts and phrase my arguments for maximum impact, you don't always get that in a debate. I do Model United Nations though, which is kind of a combination of both.

Leah | 3478 comments Mod
I can't do IMPROMPTU speech or debate. But if I'm prepared, I can argue a point.


Mrs.Crazy (nico di angelo) | 4116 comments Mod
Me too. But I can argue a point even if I'm not prepared.

Leah | 3478 comments Mod
If it means a lot to me, I probably can. But if it's something very minor, or that I have no opinion on, I can't.


message 23: by Susan (new)

Susan ...so many books and so little time (LavaTeacher66) I really love a great challenge...and will take on impromptu debates...I guess I live picking sides on anything...sometimes I win and sometimes I lose...just love seeing what sides people will take and why...


message 24: by Michaelhoctor (new)

Michaelhoctor | 59 comments I personally like speech more, but that's mainly because we don't have debate at my school (as far as i know.) Also, I worry that I may get too carried away if I were to get on a debate about a personal/well known topic.


message 25: by Leah, I'm HI-larious! (Head Mod) (new)

Leah | 3478 comments Mod
Yup, same here. That and I don't know if I could make up an argument on the spot.

T.J. Debate. People tell me I'm a great arguer to be able to think really fast. :D


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

Debate. I find it more interesting to listen to opinions of others and counter-speak rather than airing my own view only.

Maddison (Brainyboots) | 463 comments debate it is sounds less nerve wracking because your so wrapped up in your point
