Topic 1: Are today’s teens going overboard?• Do all teens just smoke and drink & Are

teenagers just drinking and smoking to act ‘cool’ for friends or is it a cry for help?

• Are all teens the same or a?• What influences teenagers to behave the

way they do?• I will discuss how the internet influences

drinking by such challenges as the ‘Drinking Game’ for various TV shows.

Debate:- Are todays teens getting out of

hand? And is it the medias fault or is it their parents?

- Why does the media and parents criticise teenagers for drink and smoking, when their main influence is TV’s such as skins and a The Inbetweeners.

Example over here: Skins Drinking Game

Topic 2: Does good education guarantee a good job?

• Todays society is in the middle of a recession, meaning many people are losing their jobs and having qualifications does not always mean a guaranteed job.

• Also, many people are being replaced by machines that can do their jobs quicker and more efficiently for less of the cost.

Debate:- Are good grades and a degree

essential to having a ‘good job’?- What is the effect of having a

degree vs not having one?- Does good grades always mean

good university?- Does a degree always mean

dream job?- Is further education essential

for a ‘good’ job?

Employment rate then and now
