You the teacher, or your students can choose the films that you wish to debate. The overall debate will be whether or not the iconic film of your choice would have been successful if it were not for the music. For example, students will debate whether or not the movie Jaws would have been a blockbuster of it's time if there was no music in the film.

Students will either A. Take the position that nobody would know the movie Jaws today without the music, or B. argue that Jaws is such a great movie that it would have been fine without the music.

This Resource provides structure, formatting, & transitional phases for you and your class to engage in a fun debate! Students love to engage in this debate because the topic is the Movies, and finding facts and evidence to back up their arguments is never-ending for them.

This resource includes a PowerPoint guided court trial for you and your class, and also includes over 10 worksheets to organize their opinions, thoughts, arguments, and evidence for the court trial. Teacher instructions are included to help you coordinate trials, and how the structure of the debate can easily be managed in your classroom. Enjoy! :)
