Debating provides students with great life skills. Debates examine differing sides of an issue or idea. The goal is to persuade the audience to agree with your side of the argument. We find that students learn the most when they are assigned the task of supporting the side of the issue that they do not agree with. It takes some talent to successfully get people to agree with you when you don’t agree with what you are saying. These worksheets will help students explore all aspects of a debate.
