Politics and Philosophy Forum

The Schools Debate Forum provides Year 11 students with the opportunity to learn critical thinking skills that can be applied to their VCE studies. The forum will consist of a debate involving staff and students from la Trobe University, a lecture on critical skills, workshops with pre-determined enquiry questions and research areas along with a number of faux debates.

Throughout the day, students will learn to consider the meaning and purpose of analysis; the skill of reasoning, self-awareness and awareness of assumptions; developing conceptual models for analysis; providing evidence/examples to support arguments.
