★ Engage Math Students in a Read, Write, & Research project that they Debate! ★ This lesson brings Language Arts, Collaboration and Math together.

This was a very successful lesson in my class. Students who did not care much for math, yet, were excellent writers enjoyed the task of researching and writing. It also assisted students good in math but weak in some writing skills to improve their research and writing.

This is a lesson for students to write a 'paper' (page, paragraph, etc) on math's importance, collaborate with each other and review each other's papers, then debate why math is important. Some of it is open-ended and will depend on what students write their paper specifically on and allows you their teacher to decide on dates, length of written assignment, etc. You may wish to EDIT the assignment based on what your requirements will be - how to submit the assignment, if it is submitted electronically, handwritten, etc. How many pages, will students do the assignment in class or outside of class, etc.

PLEASE see the photos, preview file, and description below.

This assignment is completely {editable} to suit your class and how you have students turn in the assignment. It starts with Researching (two articles I've included links to), Reading, Writing (sharing and revising with other students) and then debating ALL WHILE including MATH.

This lesson may take 3 days of class - a day to research and review the lesson with students, a day for students to collaborate, then a day to debate. I allowed 2 weeks for students to complete this project.
