-assessment
-rubric

Use this unit after teaching argument! It is designed to meet Speaking and Listening standards and reinforce what students have already learned about argument (W7.1).

Also, as the title implies, this unit is for beginners. It is not for a debate class or for students who have debate experience. It is meant for the average student who is just learning about debate. I used it in general ed, but the unit did a good job of engaging both gifted and talented students and remedial students.

The unit is designed to take eight 90 minute class periods. I can be easily lengthened, but it is harder to shorten.

The average lesson addresses one to two main concepts. Most lessons include direct instruction at the beginning, practice with groups or partners, and individual work.

My students really enjoyed this unit. In fact, a few of my students decided to start a debate club after this unit. Overall, it was very successful.
