Knowledge is Power: How to Expand your Knowledge for Debates

Read, read, read! To build your debating skills, junior debaters should read more widely. Go beyond your local papers like the Straits Times to international ones like BBC and the Guardian to gather perspectives from around the world. Read deep pieces by the Economist and the Atlantic to learn more about an issue. Make it a weekly habit to learn about one new topic or event, and soon you will be a master of current affairs! Apply this knowledge to strengthen your debate arguments.
