This product includes a blank graphic organizer as well as a completed graphic organizer to help plan for a debate. The blank organizer can be used for any debate topic.
The completed graphic organizer can be used as a model and outlines the topic of mandatory P.E. classes. This is a great resource to model how to organize and plan for a debate. This graphic organizer guides students through developing a topic (whether it is self chosen or assigned to them), forming a question, collecting research, using research to take a stance, identifying main ideas and supporting details from the research, writing an opinion statement, examining the other side to develop counterpoints, and writing opening and closing statements.
