This is a rubric for you to use to assess your students' ability to form an opinion and make an argument with a relevant example or evidence regarding any topic during a stand off with a peer.
I read aloud a would you rather sentence with two options. I expect the students to make a choice, provide an example or evidence to prove their selection is better than their peers. The students are evaluated on their ability to orally share their opinion.
N.B. I have not included a list of would you rather topics.
Some topics that I have used are:
would you rather be able to run or walk
would you rather be famous but poor or unknown and rich
would you rather give up using the internet or play video games
