Debating BEGINS!

Over the course of this term we have been perfecting our Persuasive Writing Skills! Today we again extended ourselves as we began preparing for our Group Debates!

We split ourselves into groups of 6 in which 3 students are affirmative speakers and 3 negative. Together groups chose a topic that they thought they could passionately argue. As a group we discussed things we might see and hear!

Next lesson we will work towards making our arguments sound super professional through specific language!!
