In this class, 8th Grade students are divided by groups and their teacher Mrs. Laura McCutcheon listens to the solutions to the case they thought, then helps them think about how to expand them.
Our students learn the formats of debate or how to organize responses…
They learn the fundamentals of persuasion (arguing from shared assumptions) and try a few debate rounds.
A debate is a combination of three things: public speaking, content, and argumentation. Within the International Baccalaureate learner profile, we encourage our students to be communicators, thinkers and reflective.
