Benefits and Skills of Policy Debate By James shriber

Policy debate is a form of debate competition in which teams of two advocate for and against a resolution typically for change by the U.S. Federal government.

Now just because you think debating is just arguing a topic you actually have to use important skills, my three very good skills are to know what the judge is looking for in a debate, know your evidence, and don't be scared if you sound scared you will sound less convincing and confidence is good for a debate.
Policy helps benefit students at school because they learn a lot about how to write an argumentative essay, and they will know a lot about government or policy.
specific examples of how students gain these skills is my cases for debate have corroborated evidence from certified authors. You would be better at argumentative essays because you literally learn the three ways to persuade Logos, Ethos, and Pathos.
