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.
