Product Description
Get your students excited with this great debate idea. I created this debate sheet after using the History Alive!: Ancient World program from TCI. If you are using this program, this debate goes along with chapter 27. If you are not using the textbook or this program, you can modify to suit your needs. To give an idea of how I use this activity:

I divide the class into two assigned city-states: Athens and Sparta. From there, I place students in groups of 3-4 and assign each group one of the following topics: government, economy, education and treatment of women and slaves. This allows for a focused debate where everyone participates: students assigned to Spartan "government" debate against students assigned to Athens "government," etc. The debate form also allows for an open ended session at the end of the debate where anyone can speak. These topics go along with the topics of the textbook but it would be easy to find and print this information from online. This is by far my students favorite activity for the year....they LOVE learning about ancient Greece!

Debate form covers:
Opening "remarks"
Key Arguments
"Crushing" your opponent

Note: I also send around a name sheet and students sign up for a Greek name so they can be even more in character as they debate.
