Product Description
Expressing and Defending Opinions
Cooperative Learning Activity
(Introduction to Writing and Debates

This is a workshop designed to help students to better express and defend their personal opinions. It is an excellent introduction to formal debates and writing 5 paragraph and expository essays. It takes about two days and my students love it. Students participate in cooperative learning groups where first they complete a worksheet. This worksheet contains nine controversial issues. The group must write their opinion on each issue, support each with at least two solid reasons, and then think of a couple of questions to ask other groups.
Next. each group chooses an issue and participates in another cooperative learning activity where the whole class shares and brainstorms ideas for writing and debates. In the culminating activity, each group must either do a presentation on or debate another groups about their issue.
