Let's introduce debate activity into class

In this workshop, Mr Ikegami will discuss the present situation of debate at the high school level and various ways of introducing debate into class. Participants will then have the opportunity to experience ‘classroom debate.’

Mr Hiroshi Ikegami has been coaching debate teams for the last 23 years, since the birth of the high school English debate contest in Nagano. His teams have won championship 10 times out of 23 contests. Mr Ikegami is also one of the founding executive members of the High School English Debate Association (HenDA), and is currently the chief of the international section of HenDA, which is responsible for sending Team Japan to the World School Debate Championships (WSDC).
