Product Description
Academic Controversy is my favourite debate structure and I want to share it with you! Have you always wanted to try a debate in class but were afraid to try? This re-design of a classic teaching strategy combines easy step by step instructions, student note-taking sheets and a page to help you keep track of who has had a speaking turn. It is a teaching strategy you will want to use again and again.

You can assign the topic in advance (to allow for research and preparation) or introduce an easier topic (starter topics provided) on the day of.

You may wish to follow this activity with writing. I have had students produce fantastic five paragraph essays after this rich debate. Follow up writing activities are not included.

This resource is also available in French.
Academic Controversy is part of the Conversational Classics product line.
