8. Parliamentary/ Congress Debate (G7-12)

Picture1Parliamentary Debate is based on the British model of government. Debate format is very similar to MUN. The “motions” (ideas for change) are brought before the “house” (the governing body), and between the two of them, teams clash on the issues regarding the problem in a back and forth fashion. This class helps students to stand on their own feet and speak persuasively before a large audience.
