In these 5 debate activities, students consider key, debatable questions regarding the Beowulf text such as whether or not Beowulf is a success or failure as an epic hero. Students are to compile evidence for BOTH sides of the argument in preparation for a class debate and then write an analytical/ argumentative paragraph after each debate.
Included in this packet you will find:
1. Teacher Page with instructions
2. Debate Rubric to use for grading the debate
3. 5 reproducible debate sheets, each containing a separate debate question about Beowulf
This is an excellent way to target both speaking and writing skills while practicing argumentation and rhetoric.
