Pro Side Debate Summary The pro side debate summary related to the illegal immigrants being allowed to apply for a California driver’s license has several advantages. Our learning team discussed the pro side of this topic which has been considered a highly controversial subject. In 2013, the state California passed Bill AB60, which took effect in 2015 which allows illegal immigrants to apply for a driver’s license. According to Berman, when he signed the law last year, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) praised it as a way to show that these Californians did not have to hide. “No longer are undocumented people in the shadows,” he said. “They are alive and well and respected in the state of California.” Brown’s office also noted that the law explicitly prohibits these licenses being used for any sort of investigation or arrest based on immigration status. The new law makes California one of the 10 states, along with Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, to give out licenses this way, according to the National Immigration Law Center. (Berman, 2015) The bill was written by Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D-Salinas). The assemblyman represents a district which is a center of the agricultural industry with a flourishing populating of illegal immigrant farm workers. According to ProCon.org, the law requires the DMV to issue a California driver's license to anyone who can satisfactorily establish California residency. If the driver cannot show proof of legal residency (with a social security number, for example), the license will have a "recognizable feature" to distinguish the license from those issued to legal residents. The law makes it illegal to discriminate against anyone who holds a driver's license with that mark. The license may not be used for identification purposes. (ProCon.org, 12/1)

...Demonstrative Communication Kristy D. Lazenby BCOM275 October 3, 2011 Cynthania Clark Demonstrative Communication Demonstrative Communication is best described as how we speak to someone with nonverbal communication. “Verbal Communication only makes up 7% of your message, the remainder is composed of 38% tone and 55% nonverbal cue’s”, according to College of Dupage’s management department.(Livestrong.com) There are many ways that we can affect how people perceive what we are saying or what we are trying to say. Whether written, verbal, or nonverbal we can all have an effect on how communication is demonstrated. When we talk to someone face to face nonverbal means of communication cannot be hidden. The nonverbal signals that we send are equally as important as the words that we speak and the tone of our voice. If we are having a conversation with someone in regards to their performance as an employee, it is good to keep a clear tone, speak clearly and keep our facial expressions to a minimum. When we are dealing with customers, you want to speak with an upbeat and friendly tone, speak clearly and have a happy, smiley expression. By having these positive behaviors when speaking with others you are more likely to get positive results and positive feedback. Our body language can have a huge impact on how the message we are sending is received. If our body language is not engaging, people may see it as we do not have interest and do not want to interact...

...role in keeping teens from having unsafe sex. Our youth are growing up in a world that is changing rapidly every day, exposing them to a wide range of influences from around the world. Sex education should be taught in public schools because it decreases the chance of teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Ever year teens experience 850,000 pregnancies (Campbell, 2012). The minority that are under the age of twenty-five experience about 9.1 million sexually transmitted diseases. By the age of 18, over half of the United States females have begun to have sex. The United States has the highest rates of teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases among developed countries. The response has been contested because of the debate of how sex education should be taught. Sex education is effective at assisting teens to make effective decisions about sex. Sex education will also help teens to adopt healthy sexual behaviors and lifestyles. Research shows that sex education advances the sexual health outcome of young teens (Boatman, 2014). Sex education is a way of providing children and young people with the abilities and knowledge to manage their sexual wellbeing and can provide the essential tools so they can enjoy healthy, responsible and sufficient sexual lifestyles. Sex education can reduce the risk of sexual behavior, Sex education is a very effective method for teens in preventing pregnancy and it can start at home with parenting. Sex Education and......

...Debate The technique of persuasive argument is a skill that you must acquire in order to participate in a successful debate. The art of being eloquent, choosing your words wisely, and being able to think on your feet, encompasses many of the components that any debater should be able to handle. In our first debate last week, we got off to a bit of an awkward, slow start. A few of us were confused on the format, when to speak, and what to say next. After several people went up and read their paper, it was time for rebuttals. Certain people had no problem getting up in front of the class, and vehemently stating their position on the topic at hand. Once we were able to rebuttal with more ease, the debate went on a little more smoothly. In the middle of the debate, people didn’t want to end the argument as early as we did. We began to think more critically, coming up with better counterarguments and ideas. Considering this was our first debate, I would have to give it a six out of ten. Both teams were strong in some areas, and weak in others. Over time we will become stronger debaters and be able to develop and hone our skills. As we use the middle school format more often, we will become use to it and be prepared with a closing speech from both sides and a stronger opening argument. As captain for the first time and for the rest fo the class, we will be able to strategically plan who will speak next in the middle of the debate. We can send up our stronger members for some......

...Debate Winner Summary Charis Lawson BCOM/275 Prof. Maribelin Gutierrez Why all children shouldn’t receive a Trophy When children participate in sports it is important for them to feel like they have achieved something. This will encourage them to continue what they are doing and strive for success. In the early years it is acceptable for all children to receive trophies in sporting events as it motivates them. Yet after a certain age around ten years children should begin learning that not everyone is a winner. As they get older they should know what it feels like to lose and they should know what it feels like when they really have accomplished something. The children who do not win in the sporting events will see the winners receive their trophies and will try to excel so they could be the ones receiving trophies. If all the children receive trophies it will take away from their work ethic and they will start to believe all they have to do is show up and they will get a trophy or prize. Learning to lose is a skill all children should gain in order to better them selves. If they do not learn this skill they will think that everything is given to them they will never accomplish anything in life. Life is about working hard to accomplish your goals and if their goal is to win that trophy then they will do what is necessary from them to win that trophy....

...Con Side Debate Summary Devin Smith 12/22/14 Steven Boylan This week for the week four learning team collaborative discussion the debate for the con side of the debate was discussed between Pamela Core and me. I started by saying how I felt about the con side and saying if I was con which means I would not want high school students to wear uniforms. My arguments would be that wearing uniforms, I could restrict students from their freedom of expression, meaning that students could loose their constitutional rights of speech and expression when entering the school doors. School uniforms promote everyone to be alike instead of promoting individuality meaning at a time when schools are encouraging an appreciation of diversity, enforcing standardized dress sends a contradictory message. Most public schools that has uniforms are place are in bad economic neighborhoods take away from the real issues at school. Meaning most public schools with uniform policies are in poor neighborhoods, emphasizing the class distinctions that uniforms were supposed to eliminate. Uniforms have an effect on self-image I believe when students have to wear the same outfits, rather than being allowed to select clothes that suit their body types, they can suffer embarrassment at school. Also students would rather not have uniforms. Pamela then began to explain her side and said that what I said is true. They are also very popular in private and Catholic Schools so the environment could be a......

...Debate Topic Discussion Summary Amy F. Italiano BCOM/275 Thursday, January 22, 2015 Joe Monroe, MA Debate Topic Discussion Summary Discussion, debates, arguments are all methods of looking at a subject or an issue to reveal its real essence and the varying points of view there are. We can see the debate from several positions. The first position is clarification and problem-solving. This position has an objective to see the problem and find a viable solution. However, to see the complete picture of any given topic one must enter into a discussion with not only understanding their opinion, but a willingness to see the opposite perspective. If we can do this we perhaps, find a third less obvious avenue to travel and quite possibly a better way to come to a conclusion. Another position, that can be used, is the question of whether or not you can win or lose a debate. The arguments and persuasive facts may compel some to switch sides, but if in the end you remain in the position then was winning or losing really achieved? A third position is that debates often seem to not only continue the fight or tension between opinions but fuel them to a deeper level making it harder to find a solution. Profiling The discussion topic, we are posing, is, "Should profiling be used as an accepted means to achieve the desired result”? Rationale for Discussion Topic Each member of Team C came up with two possible topics of......

...Pro Side of Debate Summary Team B Annetta Brent, Gloria Sample BCOM/275 February 6, 2015 Andre Samuel, Ph.D. Pro Side of Debate Summary Pro side of the appropriate age to give a child a cell phone There are not many pros when it comes to thinking about purchasing a cell phone for your child. As stated before, some parents consider cell phones for their young children as essential tools for staying in touch and keeping that line of communication open ,some parents give their children cell phones for other reasons. According to, Brayer (2013), “children nowadays get bullied for not “keeping up with the Jonses”. Statistics show that almost 90% of teenagers own a cell phone. It’s easy to imagine a teen not calling a friend because they’re afraid that the friend’s dad will answer the phone. Not having a cell phone can make a child an outcast at school. If your child does have a cell phone, but not a nifty phone case, he might get some flak for it. Whether you like it or not, children can be mean and judgmental”. Gloria and I feel that the best age to give a child a cell phone is at the age of sixteen. For some, at that age a level of maturity should kick in. Some will take the responsibility of having a cell phone as a serious deal and some will not. As kids of the “old school era” some of the parents back then could not afford cell phones for themselves not to mention trying to purchase cell phones for a house full of kids and as kids back then we dare not......

...Con Side of Debate Summary Should enhanced interrogation be used to protect the citizens of the United States? The answer is no. The following is a summary of the debate our team engaged in to include key points and data to support our argument. Communication Process and Effectiveness As in previous team discussions, the goal right out of the gate was to understand the objective, initiate debate and set an obtainable suspense for completion. I initiated the debate on the first day by proposing we start the discussion as soon as possible and set a deadline of Friday at 5:00pm to conclude debate. I also laid out several pros to enhanced interrogation such as the successful interrogations of Khalid Sheik Mohammad, the ticking time bomb situation and why terrorists deserve it. I also included the evil they do and would do, and made comparisons to how the terrorist’s treat their prisoners. (Messerli, 2012). The team members who responded right away concurred with the Friday deadline, and we began to comment on the five pros identified. Key Points and Supporting Arguments From the main pros discussed, our team primarily focused on three points. First, everyone agreed that just asking the terrorists nicely won’t work. In addition, enhanced interrogation is justified if it will stop another terrorist attack and/or save the lives of Americans; especially if it was a ticking time bomb scenario. Second, our team felt...

...Pro Side Debate Summary Marlon D. Ector BCOM/275 2/23/2015 Michael Frank Introduction The Keystone XL Pipeline is a massive 875 mile pipe that goes across the United States from the lands of Alberta, Canada to the lands of Nebraska to connect to and exsisting pipeline and go on to the Texas Gulf Coast. It further is a costly project where numbers have totaled the values of trillions of dollars and years of work to complete this project. Pro’s When looking at this project of building a pipeline we have to look at all the things this project would do for the economy within the United States. A con to this project allows us to produce more energy and gives us the opportunity to compete in the world by moving oil at its lowest cost. Now, with all that we have been going through in these last few years of high gas prices, that bring good news to have a hope of lower prices. Then when looking at the massive size of this project through the length of time it will take to build through 1 country, and 3 states, allows you to see the vast ability to create jobs. According to the International Brotherhood of Teamsters in a 2014 article they were in agreement because it would produce 2,500 jobs for workers closer to the project and support 42,100 jobs. This would really aid the gross domestic product in a large way and help the United States in becoming major player within the market. The pipeline is one that will allow us as a Nation......

Con Side of Debate Summary

...Con Side of Debate Summary Jorge Vega BCOM/125 March 26, 2015 John Kungis Common Core “Common Core government agencies will gather and store all sorts of private information on every schoolchild into a longitudinal database from birth through all levels of schooling, plus giving government the right to share and exchange this nosy [sic] information with other government and private agencies, thus negating the federal law that now prohibits that. This is what CC is; a type of surveillance and control of individual.” (Schlafly, 2013) Con Side of Debate Summary As a nation, we have trusted our government to make changes to the citizens voting rights. Where is that now how much does our vote really count? In this case Common Core was not introduce to the public schools to vote as a standard curriculum. Meaning of common core is control of the school curriculum, i.e. control by Obama administration bureaucrats. Curriculum decisions will be replaced by the Federal curriculum decisions by state and local school boards, state legislatures, parents and even Congress because Obama bypassed congress by using $4 billion of Stimulus money to promote CC. I believe that this structure is all about the money, not about having the correct tools for teaching, instructing, and guiding the student. Currently, each state sets its own standards. This has led to a nation with 50 sets of inconsistent standards, even though the expectations of colleges and employers in math and English......

Member for the Government 6. Member for the Opposition 7. Government Whip 8. Opposition Whip ------------------------------------------------- [edit]Roles As British Parliamentary debates take place between four teams their roles are split into two categories, those for the Opening factions, and those for the Closing factions. [edit]Opening factions The first faction on each Government and Opposition team, known as the Opening Factions, has four basic roles in a British Parliamentary debate. They must: * Define the motion of the debate. * Present their case. * Respond to arguments of the opposing first faction. * Maintain their relevance during the debate. The Opening Government team has the semi-divine right of definition, preventing the opposition from challenging their definition of the motion unless it is either a truism or clearly unreasonable.

In addition, the final two speakers of the debate (known as the Whips) take a similar role to the......
