Homework Offered
Students will have a small amount of research outside of class to gather facts about their topic. They will have time in class to collaborate with their team to develop their debate.

Assessments Offered
General feedback will be provided team-wide after each debate. When teams are waiting for their turn to debate, they may have the role of scoring the participating teams on a rubric (Did the team support their statement with a fact or opinion? Did the team speak respectfully to opposing team? Etc.). This will serve two purposes: 1. Keep teams engaged in the debate process when it is not their turn. 2. Provide general feedback to debating teams.
