Product Description
PURPOSE OF LESSON:
What child does not love to argue? This happens every day, in almost any situation, in almost any setting. As students thinking matures, so do their questions of the world. It is our responsibility as teachers to help students hone their skills when it comes to presenting an argument effectively.
We are all passionate about different topics, however, sometimes that passion does not always come out logically. Sometimes pausing and reflecting on our argument while we are arguing can help strengthen our line of thinking. It is difficult to sometimes stop and think about our thoughts in the act of passionately trying to persuade someone to our side. This can lead to regret and embarrassment at times. This activity creates a habit of reflection for students.

A way to poll students such as polleverywhere.com, or SmartBoard responders.
