Seeing both sides of an argument

11 Mar

I have recently been appointed as Year 10 debate coach.  As such, I am on the lookout for activities that will help students to critically engage with current issues and to consider both sides of an argument.  One good resource that I have found is Debate.org.  This website allows the public to set and participate in debates online.

Initially, I hope to have my students read and engage with that content.  Over time, I would like to see them participate by either responding to debates or creating their own topics.
