In Ruler of the Universe, students will practice their argument generation, argument
interaction, and persuasive speaking skills. Students will have the chance to be ruler of the universe for a minute and so decide one major rule. Students will be given five minutes to prepare a speech about one rule they would create if they were ruler of the universe. Following this, a second ruler will present a second rule and argue against the first. Thus, students should focus on preparing not only their own rule but also ways to argue against other rules during prep time.
