Debate: Is Cheerleading a Sport?

Young scholars practice the procedures of organized debate.  In this gender studies lesson, students investigate the perception of women in sports.  Young scholars conduct research to form personal conclusions as to whether or not they believe cheerleading is a sport.  They use their findings to formulate organized debates based on their opinion on the topic.  Students practice debating with each other using the skills they discussed.

Lesson Planet has been a great site for me because I teach grades K-6 and some of my lessons are not easy to teach. It has made it possible for me to come with lessons students can understand. This is one of my favorite resources to pull and review from. Thank you Lesson Planet!
