STORY:
I developed this unit with a group of competitive students who loved verbal debates. When the persuasive essay was our next unit, I realized that this topic would lend itself nicely to a class debate. I designed this unit so that each pair of students would have a relevant middle school topic where one student would argue the “PRO” side and the other would argue the “CON” side. Students each write a persuasive essay to refute the other’s arguments and then hold a debate when they finish in front of the class.
