Hey fellow teachers! I am seeking advice on how to organize and conduct a classroom debate. I teach Civics and I think debating can be a great tool for students to learn to communicate better, structure their thoughts and collaborate. I also think itís important that they learn how to disagree respectfully. Recently I have used Kialo Edu
, so they can prepare the debate online and then present it in class. I generally split the class in two groups, so ones work on arguments for the pro side and the others against. However, I would like to find other ways to organize the debates and the presentations. They all work creating arguments? Each of them creates a debate? Any ideas?
