Argumentation and Debate, Communication

Researcher Information

Message for high school students

My dream in this new school is to help students develop their argumentation and debate skills so that they can cope with a variety of critical communication situations in Japan and in the world. Debate is not a verbal fight but a process of finding an answer to a question and communicating it. It is also a method of reasoned decision-making by comparing arguments for and against a controversy. Competitive debating is one of the best methods of developing argumentation skills. I would like to welcome both experienced debaters and the uninitiated to work together to find a better way of argumentation education.
