To Prepare

  • I expect 100% participation – you must all speak. How you divide the tasks are up to you as a group.
  • Look for the four strongest arguments for your position and then find your support. Organize your strategy and back up your case, people.
  • Then, think about the strongest counter-arguments and prepare your defense.
