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.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
