what you have to do as a participant
As a participant you pretty much just have to prepare research for the debate. You will be placed in a team by your teacher (mostly either for or against a topic), and based on that, you can use the newsletter that you will be provided with to help you with your research), and take a look at the guides.
Your teacher will also pick about 2 students to act as debate moderators - these students will help the debate move forward.
Below are links which will give you a better understanding of your role as a debater or moderator.
The guides are the YouTube videos at the end of each newsletter template. These have been handmade by us, based on well-researched information and our own prior knowledge. There are a total of five of these, which cover different aspects of the debate.
Most of them are pretty self explanatory, like research tips and the speaker's rubric. The role of the moderators talks about what the student moderators have to do during the debate. The online policy puts forward some important rules and regulations to keep in mind while debating. Given below are links to all the guides, if you want to check them out.
