Core 4:

Today is a research and organization day. I will not be talking at
you a whole lot. What I will be doing, however, is talking with you,
trying to get you to organize your thoughts into a workable debate
plan. I will be encouraging you to think about both sides and I will be asking you to think about poking holes in another’s argument through Points of Information. Things to think about:

  • Which arguments should go in which part of the debate?
  • What are the most logical arguments that the other side will be making?
  • What format should you use for your fact sheet (the piece of paper
    that has all of your arguments and points of information on it)?
  • Who is going to speak when?
  • What facts and resources do you still need?
  • Would it be easier for one person do more research and another to start organizing it?

Extension: Continue to work toward an organized outline for your debate next week.
