What educators are saying

This is a fun and engaging resource - students love the idea of debating, and this resource helps focus each step along the way. Thank you!
My class loved the debate. Anything to let them talk and argue! This made it really clear and helped them set up their arguments really well.


This Let's Debate Mini-Unit is intended to support 4th - 7th grade teachers and students as they prepare to participate in class debates, both as actual debaters and as stakeholder audience members. This engaging activity can be used in many subject areas, and is a great culminating task for any unit. Perfect for that upcoming teacher evaluation you may have coming up!

This four day unit includes:

► Detailed lesson plans spanning four days

► List of suggested topics

► Schedules and templates

► Debate rules

► Peer assessment tools

►Teacher assessment rubric (based on reading, writing, listening & speaking)

►Suggestions for reluctant debate participants
