Product Description
Every year my public debate unit lands in December, a time of year when students feel bogged down by the weight of finals and the pressures of the holiday season. Because public speaking already carries a great deal of stress for many students, I set out to find both light-hearted and thoughtful holiday debate topics to keep the Christmas spirit alive in my classroom. These assignment sheets and rubrics keep kids laughing, thinking, and learning the art of public debate.

This product includes the following:
1 Cover Page
5 Debate Assignment Sheets with Detailed Requirements for Each Topic
5 Public Debate Rubrics (These rubrics have identical requirements but are labeled according to the individual assignments.)
1 Credits Page

Topics include "Santa on Trial," "Christmas or Convenience," "North Pole Feminism," "Reindeer, Elephants, and Donkeys," and "Christmas Tree Rivalry."

I hope these holiday debates spark thought and spirit into your classroom this season!
