I enjoyed doing the debates. In AP and Honors classes debates are usually very exiting because you have a group of people who are very intelligent and not only read information thats given to them but generally form an opinion on it as well.
One of the things my group did when preparing for the debate was consider what the other side of the debate would say in an attempt to rove we where wrong witch I think was helpful to us when we got back to the room.
Pros being that we didn't have to spend so much time looking up sources and we got to spend more time with the works we were given. So when writing are pice we knew ore resources well.Cons are that we didcons being that we only hand a linmited amount of information on the subject and alos the the informatin in the artical might have been slitly dateed. for examperl Obamas Privasy Bill of Righs was brought befor congress and turned down in 2011. Im hoping next week when we get back to our regular lesson plans that we will have more time to read our SSR books but I am not all too concerned about it, yet.
