Product Description
After learning about Charlemagne and the Franks, partnered students will debate whether Charlemagne helped religion or education more in Europe.

This is a scaffolded debate that I developed for my middle school students who have never participated in a debate before. I have included it as a Microsoft Word file to allow you to edit based on your class's comfort with debating. I created this for my middle school class, but it could be modified for a high school class.

With a partner, students find evidence to support either the position that Charlemagne did more for education or Christianity in the Middle Ages. They will prioritize which evidence is most useful for the debate. Then they must research the opposing side to prepare for their rebuttal. They prepare opening statements, evidence, information for their rebuttals, and closing statements in advance of the debate.

This takes my students two 45 minute class periods to complete, including research and the debate.
