IDEBATE Press releases first text in Spanish
This month, IDEBATE Press will release Tolerancia crítica y ciudadanía activa: una introducción práctica al debate educativo (Critical Tolerance and Active Citizenship: a Practical Introduction to Educational Debate), which offers educators a hands-on guide for implementing debate practices in classrooms and non-formal educational settings.
The work consists of a series of 15 sessions devoted to specific aspects of debating. Topics include: general characteristics of debate formats, public speaking, creating debate resolutions, argumentation, reasoning and fallacies, preparation of cases, taking notes, formulating questions, and judging debates.
Each session includes tips for facilitating introductory debate training and exercises to put learning into practice. The work includes activity and resource sheets for students as well as an appendix with a sample debate.
Tolerancia is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be available in the idebate.org store soon.
