Intra School Debate competition
Sam International School, Dwarka, conducted an intra-school debate competition on the topic “Is online teaching better than classroom teaching?” to develop students’ public speaking skills.
Debate is a process that involves formal discussion on a particular topic. Logical consistency, factual accuracy and some degree of emotional appeal to the audience are the main elements in debating, where one side often prevails over the other party by presenting a superior “context” or framework of the issue. This was kept in mind while organising the debate. Students spoke eloquently both for and against the motion. The competition concluded with a kaleidoscope of thoughts and opinions.
