Product Description
This is a tool to help you structure a classroom debate based on an article. First, you provide students with an article that presents the facts. You choose a slightly controversial topic (should vampire bats be hunted, for example), based on the article you provided.

As students read the article, they are to write their reasons and examples for both sides on the provided graphic organizer. Then, you assign sides. Choose which students will be pro and con, and assign them a little time to work together to develop concrete points. Finally, you go around and have the class debate.

Each point much be based on evidence from the article. They must document the paragraph and line number. This is an excellent way to get students to show their work, and to get them to prove their points.
