hi im Kylie hope u have a good time debating this topic this is the first time i wont playderize.

EOG`S ARE STUPID BECAUSE WHY TAKE 4 HOURS DOING SOMETHING STUPID WHEN U CAN HAVE FUN AT SCHOOL.

EOGs are a necessary part of the learning experience. They help prep young men and women for today's fast paced work environment and help get them responsible. This will result in more fun overall later in life and throughout life. Such a net benefit can't be overstated mind you.

well EOGS are useless in many ways they stop kids from getting fit and they make kids become bored and tired and it doesnt help kids learn it just helps kids remember what they learned.
Sardukar

Con

Yes but they are useful in many many more ways. You see, the ability to retain information and skill use is vital to the well-being of students as well as professionals. If you or I were not well practiced in remembering information we would be unable to perform physical exercise at all!

Take a push up for example. If all we ever did was the down motion without remembering the up motion previously learned we would be unable to reap any benefit at all from the entire push up motion itself!

Lets take something more complex, soccer for example. Soccer has a great deal of rules and skills that require practice and discipline that all must be accounted for. If you were playing soccer and forgot that only the goalie could use their hands and you were not the goalie and you used your hands you would be penalized greatly.

Retaining information is part of life and has to be practiced just like any other skill.

well if eogs are so important how come 2nd and 1st graders dont take the EOGS?
Sardukar

Con

Thats only because for 1st and 2nd graders its more important to get in the process of learning and being creative rather than strict understanding what they memorize. At the early stages teachers only want to adjust kids to the way school works but once 3rd grade comes around they expect a student to be able to memorize and understand what they learned.

Thank you :)

Reasons for voting decision: No one said what an EOG is, but it's apparently not very related to school (wikipedia says it's some kind of eye test; Electrooculography). While I don't see a clear connection, Con says that it helps retain information, and without this ability, we wouldn't be able to to exercise. Pro asks why 1st graders don't do EOG, to which Con answers that they should get into the process of learning. Con's arguments seem to go unrefuted, so I'm giving him the Arguments point. Pro's S&G wasn't horrid enough to be hard to understand, so that stays tied. A tip to both debaters: don't expect the voter to instantly know what you're talking about. Make definitions.
