Class will cover the basics of argument construction then a mock debate followed by personal feedback. I will be running debates in the British Parliamentary format as I believe it is the best option for training one's critical thinking and basic political knowledge. My classes aim to not only improve a students debate skills and presentation, but also to improve student's ability to write effective academic essays, as the ability to present ones thesis clearly and convincingly is often the best way excel.
My course will cover the following concepts in order, afterwards constant practice is the key to improvement:
* Introduction to BP format.
* Argument construction.
* Topic analysis.
* Framing and Case building.
* Extensions and closing statement.
* Effective rebuttal.
* Moral arguments.
* Specialised topics.

Hi! My name is Nick, communications professional and lobbyist looking to teach on the side, and I am offering my services as a debate instructor for all those interested in joining debate tournaments or just improving one's critical thinking. My experiences include competing in university-level debate tournaments all over Europe, along with running and managing my Universities' debate student association. I have also translated my argumentation skills into effective writing, having written freelance for various publications on a wide variety of topics from the future of selling printers to virtual reality therapy technologies.
