Practice debate with a topic your high schoolers will love! This is a no-prep (except for just printing it off) activity for your debate, public speaking, or English 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!
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 is completely propositions of POLICY.
