Simplified Debate in a 6th Grade Classroom: The Power behind Words

Susan Williams
6th Grade English Teacher, Midvale Middle School, Canyons School District

This session teaches multiple ways to include voiced and silent simplified debates during regular classroom time. To ensure that all students participate in a classroom discussion, we will review several methods that can be done in a single class period. We will look at the uses of Silent Gallery Walks, Write Arounds, Argument through CSI, and the use of TodaysMeet in the classroom.
