Topic or assignment first?

Have content you want to debatify? Teaching a debate class and looking for a topic? Check this out.

Some instructors come to Argutopia for help administering a debate without much concern for the topic their students will argue. Others come to us with a topic they'd like to "debatify," but need help setting up a successful debate experience for their students. You're welcome to start from either point.

You can begin with your own topic or use one of our debate kits to kick off your assignment. If you choose to use a debate kit, you'll benefit from curated topics, customized issues and--in many cases--links to resources that your students can use to prepare. Any kit you choose will be automatically imported into your assignment

If you'd prefer to create a debate using your own topic, check out our guide to writing topics and issues.
