TOPIC GUIDES

Debating Matters' acclaimed Topic Guides place debates in a social context: providing a framework for students’ thinking.

With a current library of over 80 Topic Guides, covering debates relating to big questions about science and experimentation, liberty and the law, arts and culture, health and medicine, politics, the media and more, debaters use these resources when preparing for the competition. Schools are also encouraged to use the guides for more informal debates, whether at the school debate club or as a lesson resource.

For further advice and ideas about how to use our Topic Guides, take a look at our latest resource pack for schools.
