D EBATE TOPICS , SCHEDULE , AND PREFERENCES . General Description . Each student will directly participate in one debate, as part of a small group (see document "Debate Specifics" for details). The dates and tentative topics for each debate are listed in the table below. Each student will also be responsible for writing a short "position paper" on two of the other topics. Position papers are due prior to class on the day of the debate for the specified topic. Please note that there are definite pros and cons to all of the topics presented below, and also remember that examining in detail all different viewpoints, especially those that might conflict with your own, can greatly improve your own understanding of any issue. Hence, regardless of which side (pro or con) you debate on a topic, the most important thing is to thoroughly examine the evidence, carefully prepare your case, and actively contribute to a dynamic and well informed debate/discussion in class! What you need to do.
