Columbus Day Debate

This debate works well in European History, or even in US history– especially if you life in a state that gives Columbus Day off.

The format was developed for me by a debater and is designed to take about 50 minutes giving students about two minutes to prepare between each section, and taking a few minutes for judges to make their decision.   I try to get a debater to help me judge, and bring in anyone else who’s willing to come.  Having extra people seems to make it  more of an event.
