[eDebate] help with sports argument class
Thu Apr 6 13:25:08 CDT 2006
In my downtime between fashioning stupid rules for the NDT (as though
the current system hasn't been about as stupid as could be) and
poorly-worded resolutions, I'm designing a class to teach next spring
on Sports Arguments. Basically it's going to be a standard
Argumentation and Debate class using nothing but sports examples.
"Should Pete Rose be in the Hall of Fame?" "Should Title IX be
repealed?" "Best QB of all time?" etc.
I was wondering if any of you had suggestions of course content -
perhaps some books and/or articles to recommend, or maybe some
suggestions for possible debate topics. Scott Harris has recommended
"The 100 Greatest Sports Arguments of All Time" which I've purchased.
Other than that I'm just starting.
Any help would be appreciated.
