Ordo Amoris – I have been fascinated with politics since I was a youngster. I remember watching the Kennedy-Nixon debate at my grandparent’s house. I now teach rhetoric at a tutorial that has all students debate in grades 7 – 12. I teach Lincoln-Douglas style debate in my class but at the school, policy debates, legislative, public forum and mock trial are all taught. Presidential and vice-presidential debates are discussed. This site offered a Presidential Bingo and gave things for students to look for. They did the same thing for the Vice-Presidential debate also. There are funny items and thought provoking items included. Why didn’t I think of this?
