Product Description
Social Studies Debates. Here is a great way for students to express their opinions on some real life issues in our society today as well as what they believe about issues stemming from the United States Civil War.

25 Social Issues Debates: Reading, Writing, & Speaking in Social Studies
Your students will have a formal debate on controversial social issues that are part of society today. This week-long activity is bound to ramp up your classroom discussions. I have done this type of activity for 15 years and look forward to it every time it comes around.

What I love about this lesson the most is that students get to voice their own opinions without being criticized by anyone. It provides them with a safe platform to talk about an important issue in history/today's society as well as an issue they feel passionately about.

Included in this activity are:

-25 Social Issues Debatable topics on Cardstock to be displayed
-Debate Survey for students to figure out what they believe
-Grading Evaluation that is simple and to the point
-Tips for Your Debate sheet to help students with writing
-Lesson Plan that explains what I have done for this activity
-Take Your Own Stance sheet for students to fill out during debates

The one thing I appreciate the most about the activity is the discussion that is held after the debates are concluded. For one full week the students will be focused on the social issues of today and hopefully by doing this activity they are more aware to the issues that face their generation in the world in which they live.

What I love about this lesson the most is that students get to voice their own opinions without being criticized by anyone. It provides them with a safe platform to talk about an important issue in history/today's society as well as an issue they feel passionately about.
