Librarians, database administrators, and information scientists all share a format for organizing information based on topic, and that is a standardized keyword list. For example, if you were searching for information about the Inuit, the native tribe that lives in Alaska, many libraries categorize that information by the keywords Inuit, indigenousAlaska, Inuit, Native Americans-Alaska.

Students are up and moving around, they are excited about the subjects, they are bringing their own ideas and research to share with the rest of the class, they are actively working with partners, and the classroom positively hums with energy. This is the kind of classroom that we all dream of having; where students are excited to be there and they take away ideas and experiences that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. Debate helps to create this kind of atmosphere in the classroom by getting students involved and rewarding their interest with the public debate performances.
