EASY DEBATES FOR THE GOVERNMENT CLASSROOM
Activity book with reproducible pages
Step-by-step directions introduce three different debating styles—the basic team vs. team debate, the multiple team debate (in which teams debate open-ended rather than yes-or-no questions), and the teacher vs. student debate—and offer ideas on how to expand, extend, and adapt each debate. The book also includes a scoring rubric, a sequence and timing summary, helpful hints, and follow-up questions.Sample debates: "Are political parties necessary?", "What is the most important principle of the Constitution?", and "Is accessing cell phone and wireless information against the Fourth Amendment?"
