This resource enables you to have a structured classroom debate about the topic of demography—are we headed for a Malthusian Catastrophe or not?

This lesson begins with a simulation to help students understand the Malthus Theorem. Students will then briefly research Malthusian and anti-Malthusian perspectives to gain an initial understanding of both sides.

Students will then have a brief discussion over the topic before being split into sides for a structured classroom debate.

You Get:
☑Malthus Theorem Simulation
☑Debate foldable graphic organizer and reflection
☑Malthusian and Anti-Malthusian signs
☑Malthusian and Anti-Malthusian selection cards
☑Planning a Debate Handouts
☑Team Debate Rubric
☑Self and Group Reflection Rubric

If you would like to teach your students about the laws of logic and logical fallacies and use this structure to create your own debates, check out this resource: Classroom Debate for Any Topic, Editable.
