Four Corners Debate

Should the student population wear uniforms to school? Pupils express whether they strongly agree, agree, disagree, or strongly disagree with a controversial statement, moving to a designated corner of the room to indicate their stance. They discuss their positions within like-minded groups and present reasons to the class. Finally each class member crafts a paragraph defending their position. Link to debate topics, included, leads to a host of other debate-supportive resources.

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
