What do students want? This students wants more in class debates :)

I had the pleasure of debating an issue of Genetically modified crops/food and was on the negative side for GM crops in Science last year. One point which I raised was the fact that as a world roughly 1/3rd of the food produced is then wasted which was reaffirmed recently. Free style debating is just getting up without palm cards just using the knowledge you already have in your head to debate points,however most of the class ended up reading of palm cards @_@ and other technology. However , the last term of science was probably the most insightful periods where I felt truly engaged with the material of the subject.
