Default class help, please.

For my Animal Science class, we have to do a debate. My group is doing the pros and cons of declawing. There are five of us in the group, with three of us against declawing (me and two other girls) and two of us for it. Our teacher has already told us that since most of us haven't done anything like this before, she's not expecting the debates to be grandiose. Since we're completely lost as to what we're supposed to do, any help and/or suggestions would be appreciated.

I thought you decided against the declawing debate?

All you need to do is search "declaw" here and you'll get tons of info.

Just make sure that every point you are making is stated clearly - debates are often won or lost on how clearly an argument is expressed as much as it is by the validity of the arguments.

When you do your research, break it down into clear points.

Also take a look at what arguments the other side are likely to use so that you can counter them.

Yes, I decided against declawing, but that was for a paper I have to write for my English class. Instead, I'm writing a paper on why spay/neuter should be mandatory. The debate is for my Animal Science class.

Thanks Arianwen. I'll have to text the other girls in my group. The debate is tomorrow and we need to compare notes before class. Class starts at 6 pm, so I'm hoping we can meet at least an hour beforehand.
