Debates help students improve their skills in the areas of problem solving, critical thinking, communication, teamwork and leadership. For this class activity, divide your students into six teams. Two groups will be competing against each other at a time during the classroom debate. There are a total of three debate questions so each student in your class will participate in a debate and will be an audience member for two debates. The first two questions relate to issues debated during the Constitutional Convention and the third question relates to an issue that was debated after the Convention.
