Make the Best Use of Silly Debate TopicsWho knew it was so easy to come up with some very good ideas for silly debate topics? Of course, no one has to be a scientist to know that spiders do not belong in a Science fair. They are a pest and no one should share a laboratory with them.
A silly debate topic can be a religion. Christianity has been an option for many years and other religions will probably not be forgotten.
This is so the students can get a glimpse into the different religions. The students might not care if it is true or not. It's all part of the learning process.
But then again, religion is something that people just cannot ignore. When someone looks for a place to worship, where does he turn? He doesn't go for the church; he goes to a mosque or a temple.
Even though Arizona is largely a Christian state, we still have minority religions like Muslims and Buddhists. So let's give them the opportunity to participate in our schools. Then we can see how well they integrate into the other students' lives.
You might want to consider a science debate topic that is not so real. What about a debate about whether the Titanic actually sank or was it a fake. I am sure that this would be the talk of the town!
Whatever silly debate topic you come up with, make sure that it is something that would stir up debate and discussion among the class. Any topics that involve scientists should have an intelligent discussion. The students need to learn something from this.
If your subject is really tough, don't worry, there are many more subjects that can be tackled. Teachers are challenged by their students every day.
