Debate – Daytime Curfew

Fishbowl Discussion


Rules: 1. Everyone must participate. You MUST argue the side you have been assigned regardless of your true feelings about the topic. 2. Respect your classmates! Start counter arguments with statements like “You make a good point, but…”; “I respect your opinion but I feel”, etc. - use Ethos/Pathos/Logos3. Wait your turn to debate and do NOT cut others off. 4. Your arguments must be valid, reasonable and realistic. 5. HAVE FUN!!!!


Procedures:1. The class is divided into two groups, those for the daytime curfew and those against. In the middle there are six desks known as the “hot spot”. 2. Each side will send three to four people to the “hot spot” to debate at a time. 3. When you are not part of the “hot spot”, you need to take notes and make comments on a piece of paper detailing your thoughts (this will be turned in for a grade). This is to help you prepare for your turn in the “hot spot” or to help you reflect. 4. HOT SPOT: When you are in the “hot spot”, be respectful and allow everyone to express their opinions. Do not be rude or disrespectful to others in the “hot spot”. You may use your notes or take notes while in the “hot spot”. 5. Counter Argument - Take good notes because you will have a chance to “counter” any argument that you hear from another hot spot. 6. Closing Arguments – Last thoughts7. Once everyone has had a chance in the “hot spot” you will write a paragraph (on the back of your notes) about your TRUE opinion on the topic of today’s debate.
