Debate Topics to Research

In class on 12/14, students narrowed down their choices for debate topics to these four.  I give the general topic below, as well as a possible affirmative resolution (premise), which will be argued “for” and “against”.

  • Net Neutrality (Be it resolved that access to the internet remain neutral.)
  • Bitcoin (Be it resolved that bitcoin should be recognized as a legitimate and beneficial form of currency.)
  • Paying College Athletes (Be it resolved that college athletes should be paid based on the revenue a team earns for a university or college.)
  • The “Muslim Travel Ban”  (Be it resolved that the Travel Ban against mostly Islamic countries is unconstitutional.)

Assignment: Do general research on ALL FOUR topics over the break and become informed about both sides of the argument for each topic.
