World Schools Debate: England vs. Korea
This is a sample debate in the World Schools format as an instructional model. It was produced by the Korea Debate Association.
Here is what they have to say about the sample debate and the other materials:
Prepared by Peejay Garcia, Coach, Korean National Debate Team
The debate you are about to view is an official World Schools Debate Championship (WSDC) preliminary round debate, held during the 2005 WSDC. It is between England (on the Proposition side) and South Korea (on the Opposition side). The topic is “This House would use affirmative action in response to historical injustice.”
Please use this debate to test your skills as an adjudicator. We have included the actual oral adjudication of the debate by the Chair of the adjudication panel, which is shown after the Proposition reply speaker speaks. Please do NOT play that portion of the debate until you have completed your own adjudication, scored the debate, and decided the winner. Only then should you view that adjudication. It is there to serve as a guide for how judges might deliver the news of a decision.
