-This is a great lesson for older middle school and high school students to debate the topic of whether teachers should be armed in school.
-This is a sensitive topic so make sure your class is prepared to discuss this topic in a mature manner.
-The lesson plan includes a classroom poll, introduction video, several websites and resources, debate points, debate ballot, graphic organizers for information, persuasive essay template and directions, key terms, and a answer key/rubric.
-This is a well put together lesson that will take 1-3 class periods in total depending on how long students research and if you dedicate an entire period to the debate itself.
-Debate ballot included in a separate free document!
-If there are any questions comments or concerns ask me before you buy!
-This was a very successful lesson at the 8th grade advanced social studies level but could also work in high school!
