I do not really know what my opinion is on debating. I like to do it, but at the same time, I don’t. I guess it might depend on what I am writing or debating. At the start of this unit, I really did not care for the articles or whatever we read and had to highlight the logical, emotional, and ethical appeal in them. It just was not fun for me. I am sure it wasn’t supposed to be “fun”, but I always hope that I would not mind the class work we did. I just felt like it was pointless not gonna lie. I understand why we did it though. In the long run, it helped us realized the parts of arguments that were meant for certain feelings like emotional appeal. The arguer wants us to agree with them, obviously. When I think about why we did all this stuff before debating, it makes sense. I am sure that if we wrote a debate before we did all the practice, they would be much worse from the ones that we just wrote. I think a lot of people have poor arguments. Adults are pretty bad at arguing in my opinion. That might just be me though. I listen in on some adults arguments and I can think of many things to tell them and come at them with, but I just stay quiet. Overall, I think that teenagers are the worst arguers. We kind of, well I guess we just do, say whatever comes to our mind in the midst of an argument and do not think about what we are about to say. I listen to people conversations around school and when anyone is arguing, they mostly just say things that are completely irrelevant. I am sure everyone can relate to this, with all the conversations that are said through a single school day. Anyway, back to my debate. I didn’t think that this debate was “easy”, but it wasn’t completely difficult. I had fun learning and researching my topic which was gun control. It wasn’t that easy coming up with questions, but other than that it wasn’t too bad. Now I think that debating isn’t as bad as I used to think it was. I think everyone should learn how to debate and argue.
