Mastering English through Global Debate brings together rhetorical
traditions and the best practices of ESL instruction to facilitate
superior-level proficiency in the English language. Each chapter
addresses a rich topic of debate, providing students with a set of
prereading activities, texts covering both sides of a debate topic,
and postreading comprehension and lexical development exercises-all
of which foster the language and critical thinking skills needed
for successful debates. A rhetorical methods section in each
chapter integrates language and practice and prepares students for
end-of-chapter debates. Using debate to develop advanced competency
in a second language is a method that is finding increased interest
among instructors and students alike, in both synchronous online
teaching and the individual classroom. Students are prepared to
participate fully in debates with their classmates-at home, abroad,
