Debate instructions for class. Debate includes a group for prosecution, defense and judges. Students put the Friar on trial for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Aligned to Common Core standards. Common Core standards are attached to the assignment. Includes rubric for how assignment is graded by the teacher.
In a class of 30 or more, I usually do two debates in one day. One putting the Friar on trial, and one debating whether Romeo is at fault for what happens to him or whether Fate is to blame. I essentially use this assignment sheet for both.
