What educators are saying

Our public speech was canceled this year and the kids were thrilled, but I used this in place of it and they had so much fun! Really great resource!
This a great resource up for practicing debate in a different way. It's a great change up and the kids really enjoyed it.


Introduce your students to the world of debate! When my students first heard the word debate, they imagined a shouting match with classmates. To help them understand that debates are a formalized process, I created this activity. It has helped my students understand the individual roles and process of debating in class.

Included in this product are:

* Detailed instructions for the teacher

* 15 Student approved topics (plus one extra card for your own topic)
