Good morning/afternoon, class! Welcome to today's English lesson. Today, we are going to explore the art of argumentation and debate. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to construct strong arguments and engage in healthy debating with your peers.

To start things off, let's break the ice with a fun game called "Whose Argument Is It Anyway?" You will be divided into two groups, and each group will be given a topic to debate. Both groups will be given three minutes to come up with their best arguments and present them to the opposing group.

The catch is that each group will have their arguments switched! So, Group A will present Group B's arguments and vice versa. After both groups have presented, we will have a vote to decide which group presented the stronger arguments, regardless of whose arguments they were originally.

This game aims to exercise our critical thinking skills and to help us understand how to present strong arguments convincingly. It is important to note that in an argument, logical thinking and persuasive language are key. By the end of this lesson, we hope to equip you with the skills to present and defend your arguments articulately.

Are you ready? Let's start with our first game of "Whose Argument Is It Anyway?"
