Borrowing elements from a formal debate (opening statement, cross-examination, and rebuttal), this assignment has students write a debate...with themselves! I use this assignment in a unit on point of view/perspective, but it would also work well as part of a persuasive unit or in a debate class.
* Assignment sheet/directions
* Example (students had a lot of fun reading the example out loud in class)
* Graphic organizers
* Extra notes/resources for teachers
