  • Assign students to represent different sides of a debate.
  • Ask students to prepare for the debate as you see fit.
  • In class you can have students debate the topic either as a whole class or by putting students in small groups with a few students from each side of a debate.

Reason:

  • Debates engage students and enable them to better respond to one another.
