Student's debate took place within The Student's Republic — 2008 multifestival.
As one of organizers of game explains, a press - the secretary of All-Ukrainian youth public organization "Democratic Alliance" Darina Manzaruk, debate gives to participants new knowledge and abilities, teaches them to react adequately to a question, it is clear and logical to build statements, to look for information within a narrow subject. It also opportunity to develop the oratorical abilities and to learn to work in team.
Darina also already took part in debate, and knows that it isn't so simple as it seems at first sight. Sometimes it is necessary to defend a position which you don't support, but your task - to convince of it audience. Especially when the subject comes across the unusual. "() it was very difficult for me to convince of my case the people that in the Verkhovna Rada gays have to be (deputies) only, - Darina speaks. - But we were prepared, and we made it".
Among participants of game there were representatives of different Nikolaev higher education institutions of various age categories and specialties. Partly therefore it was difficult to them to be defined at a subject choice for discussion. Corruption subjects in higher education institutions, a mode in student's hostels were offered, to knowledge of students; and by consideration of each of subjects the whole discussion was already developed.
As a result the subject was chosen the unexpected: "Chalk or felt-tip pen: whether it is worth changing something? ". In fact, in borders of this subject participants had an opportunity to discuss need of introduction of innovations for education, having noted as their pluses (in particular, an intensification of educational process), and minuses (including possible negative impacts on participants of educational process).
Debate started next day in the children's town "Fairy tale" where there took place the game "The Student's Republic — 2008". But to consensus didn't come as participants of both teams weren't bad prepared therefore adduced convincing arguments in favor of the position, having found for this purpose the interesting facts. Therefore winners didn't begin to define: good experience became an award to each participant.
