parliamentary procedure
Parliamentary Procedure
  • Parliamentary Procedure traces its origins to the House of Commons in the United Kingdom
    • It is a way to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and has a chance to speak
    • It’s also quite rowdy and ridiculously fun!
the house will be in order
The House will be in Order
  • During discussion or debate members who wish to ask questions raise their hands
    • They DO NOT say “I have a question”
      • It is pretty obvious that if you raise your hand and you’re not standing up to speak…you clearly have a question!
    • They simply say “Point of information”
      • It sounds much more sophisticated!
    • They are CONCISE: they only get 15-30 seconds to ask the question
debates and discussions
Debates and Discussions
  • During discussions and debates, when a member is recognized by the president, or the chair, that person has the floor
    • They begin by thanking the person who recognized them
  • The member who has the floor will stand up to address the group
    • When they are finished, and BEFORE they sit down, they will say “My thanks to…”
the fun part
The Fun Part
  • Heckling is an important part of parliamentary style debate
    • It is an energetic, yet professional, form of participation.
    • Here’s how you do it…
in the affirmative
In the Affirmative…
  • If you are in the affirmative, or you agree with something that is said, you may:
    • Lightly pat the desk in front of you with your open palm
    • Close your hand into a fist and rap your knuckles against the desk
    • If you STRONGLY AGREE with what has just been said you may add in the phrase “Hear, hear.”
in the negative
In the Negative…
  • Heckling in the negative is done cleverly. If you come across as rude or impolite…you’re doing it wrong!
    • Say things like:
    • “Poor form!” or “Bad form!”
    • “Shame!” (Drawl the long ‘a’ sound)
    • “Shame on you!” (This is done quickly)
etiquette
Etiquette
  • One does not scream like a wild lunatic when heckling
  • Heckling is done rarely, and cleverly
    • Remember there is ALWAYS a heckler who is cleverer than you
    • Don’t give them an opportunity to embarrass you
