LESSON:
1.  Review instructions for remaining elements of the debate and then go to the CAT LAB to engage in: 

To review the format of the debate: 
  • each presenter will open with a one-minute opening position 
  • secondly each side will be allowed to question the other side: it is required that each panelist will have at least two questions for the other side and should respond to their answers; hopefully you will be able to engage in refutations at this stage
