Homework Offered
Students will have research outside of class to gather facts about their topic. They will have time in class to collaborate with their team to refine the team's position.

Assessments Offered
General feedback will be provided team-wide after each debate. As students become more proficient in their own debate skills, they may be asked to help score the debate for that session (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. Help students tune in to specific elements in debate that they observe. 2. Provide general feedback to debating teams.
