Improving Critical Thinking and Creativity Through Debate

A debate is an activity that brings the art of reading, thinking and speaking together in one place. That is why it has become an integral part of modern education. With the intention to inculcate good communication skills and good analytical & critical thinking ability in the ‘Young Adults’ of Prangan, the English teachers organized a Debate Competition for the fifth-graders on 20th July 2018. A total of 24 proficient debaters and interjectors from Grade-V participated in the competition, while their classmates made for a keen audience. Each section was represented by two speakers, one each for and against the motion. The topic for the debate, “Should Plastic be Banned?” captivated the young minds and brought forth some very interesting perspectives from the debaters. The interjectors challenged the debaters with their powerful thought-provoking impromptu questions.
