Summary

Everything students, parents, and teachers need to know about debating and public speaking. 
 


Welcome to the world of school debating and public speaking, the best training ground for developing self-esteem and learning to look critically at big issues. Speaking well builds confidence and opens up a world of opportunity, in education, leadership, careers, and community and political engagement. In an increasingly competitive world, being a convincing, passionate, and persuasive speaker is essential to standing out from the crowd. 
 


Claire Duffy not only demystifies the process but makes it fun. Learn all about the best ways to prepare for a debate or speech, the persuasive power of reason, the art of argument and rebuttal, and, when worse comes to worst, how to be gracious in defeat. Including practical tips from the pros and helpful step-by-step examples, this is the essential handbook for making every spoken word count.
