The Literary League's 12 Days of Giving: Day 8: My Gift to You!

December 08, 2015


Welcome to Day 8 of the Literary League's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We know that the holiday season is busy for both teachers and students, and it never seems to slow down after that. To help you make it through the rest of the year, you need a stock pile of lessons that can be easily implemented at any time. Today you'll find a resource that you can use any time of year in your classroom.

My students love to debate, or "argue" as they often call it, but few are comfortable speaking in front of the class. In this high-interest activity, students discuss, debate, and write about what they would do if they received an inappropriate image of a classmate on their cell phone. Students will form their own opinions, debate with a small group, and reflect on the activity.

This lesson is designed to be a one period activity focused on speaking & listening skills, but can can easily be extended into an argument essay or real world research if student interest is high. 

I love these Discuss, Debate, Write lessons because they require no preparation for teachers, students do all of the talking, and it builds their public speaking confidence levels.
