Our class had a great debate about a book, named Esperanza Rising. The book was about a girl named Esperanza who once lived in Mexico and then had too move to California. The debate was about who had the most Influential Relationship with Esperanza. There were three claims in all:
Each claim had a different group, and every person had their own role:
• The Opening Speaker had 90 seconds to talk.
• The Question Asker asks the other team at least three questions.
• The Question Answerer answers the questions the asker gives them.
• The Closing has 90 seconds to summerise and to give one last statment about why the judges should pick them.
The debate was fun. The Mama group won, but everyone made good arguments.
