This Coffee Debate Activity will let your students practice debate with a policy proposition your high school students will love! This is a no-prep (just print it off) activity for your debate, public speaking, or ELA students! It's a lighthearted practice in persuasion. Take a break and watch your students construct and defend their arguments!
Just divide up the students how you want, hand them each their packet, and let them start preparing the debate! The policy proposition included lets the students pick the coffee shop they want to debate about, then they argue why that shop should (or shouldn't!) lower their prices! This debate has PDF form fields, so just type in the coffee shop your students want to discuss, and the rest of the fields will fill themselves in. This allows you to tailor the debate to your students’ choices.

A simple and fun way to have your students practice their persuasion skills. When I teach debate, I teach using propositions of fact, value, and policy. This particular activity focuses completely on proposition of POLICY.
