Debate

posted by .

Can someone give me some tips on how to do well in a debate and possibly win? I have an opening and closing statement, arguments for my topic, and arguments against the other topics. We are talking about the best alternative to using petroleum. My choice was public transportation. I think my arguments are pretty good but I need some ideas on how to do well when we do the actual debate. I know this wouldn't actually be considered homework but could someone help me anyway?
