Are you planning a debate for your language arts units? Use this lesson to work on debate and discussion procedure, as well as asking thoughtful questions. Middle schoolers work in pairs or small teams to complete research, develop topics, and formulate debate questions. They examine why debates are effective methods for considering an issue, and why understanding all sides of an issue is important in discussion.

Lesson Planet has been nothing short of amazing! Lesson Planet is a part of my weekly lesson planning regimen. I teach my children the importance of collaboration and I think Lesson Planet is an excellent example of how collaboration can help improve ones learning.
