Philosophical Chairs preparation worksheet on Google Docs that asks students to take a claim, pro or con, and look at both sides with evidence, a counterargument, and a rebuttal back to that counterargument. It also outlines an area that has students find a credible outside source and write in a color-coded Claim, Evidence, Reasoning (C.E.R.) format.

The Jamboard allows students to virtually move from one side to the other with digital sticky notes. It also allows students to have three talking chips to help support equitable voices. If the debate is in-person, students can physically move seats and this can be a bird's eye view of the classroom.

The reflection sheet allows students to reflect on their participation, stance after the debate, and asks them to note glows (positives), grows (areas of improvement), and goals going forward for future debates.
