The persuasive speech design for a debate will work best for a speech engaging opposing views. A debate would feature two speakers or teams of speakers who take turns persuading an audience that their particular views on a topic or subject are the only logical, reasonable views to entertain. In the end, the audience, or a panel of judges or teachers, might vote for the most persuasive member or team.

  • Prizes?

In some cases, this persuasive speech design might feature prizes for winners or some form of transferable school credit system that encourages students to participate as often as they can. Often, students who excel at persuasive speaking become charismatic lawyers, politicians, or public relations executives. In fact, this sort of skill set can be an asset in any lifestyle or vocation, since we all need to fight for our point of view now and then.

  • Winners and losers

With this design of persuasive speech, there will likely be winners and losers, so it's important to understand that some of the rate of success a person has will depend on which side of a topic they are asked to defend. For example, certain topics, such as defending terrorists or something extreme like that, will not be crowd-pleasers, and people who take this side will need to work hard to win people over. Often, judges for these debates will be well trained to look for the central arguments and details in a person's speech - the topic will be a secondary factor in their score.

To learn more, consider picking up a book on persuasive speeches and the art of mastering this type of public speaking. Primarily used in the academic world, this type of speech-making can build confidence and intellectual skills. In general, shy people will be less likely to take on this extracurricular activity.
