This product encourages all grades and subject areas to engage in the argumentative process by forming a statement and supporting it with evidence. Simply choose a statement to present to your students, show the presentation to guide them in the argumentative process, and watch your students naturally argue both sides. This is a great lesson to change up your routine by trying this ready-to-use lesson for any time. This product includes the following:
* Presentation to guide argumentative discussion (14 slides)
* Worksheet to scaffold discussion (2 page)
Examples of statements teachers can use (you can tell I'm a science teacher):
* Earth Science: "Astronauts should travel to Mars for space exploration."
* Life Science: "Zombies--although not real--would be considered a living thing."
* Physical Science: "The human body exists in the solid state of matter."
Warning: students will get very excited and not want to end the conversation.
