Product Description
Challenge students to debate the merits of literature, grammar, and group work by engaging in a speed date debate, where students pair up and argue for or against eight different claims — with a new debate partner each time. Use this activity to get students talking to each other about ELA class and to gauge their feelings toward literature and grammar.

This activity is great for authentic discussions about ELA class as students have to support their points with real world evidence, but they only have 45 seconds to make their argument before their partner's turn to debate. After both sides have debated, a short free-for-all ensues before students move to another debate partner and claim. This activity gets loud, but it's one students love — and one that helps them get to know one another.
