    Hi all

    Me and a friend are doing a presentation, and we each have to argue one side of the argument each.

    Can anyone enlighten me as to how it should be structured? For example, should we both do a point in turn, i give my points and then she gives hers to counter argue. Or should it be kept completely seperate, I do all my points, and then she does all hers, so it's effectively kept in half?

    thanks

    Why don't one of you do points 'For' and the other do points 'Against'?

    Personally when people flick back and forth in presentations trying to convey an argument it bores me and I loose track of what is being presented.

    EDIT: Or just do exactly what you said: certain number of argument points each, ie 4 each and then expand when presenting? :dontknow: . . .

    That's what I was thinking. I'm doing arguments against and she is doing arguments for. I'd feel better if i gave all of my points in one go, then she gives all hers. But she wants to counter argue my points straight after i have given them

    Perhaps sit down with the other person, work out the plan for it and see how it fits. Try both methods so you can see for yourselves which is better.

    Hope that helps
