Role Play Debate

Suggested topics for a role play debate include school uniforms and culpability for drunk driving, but any issue of interest to your class will work. What are the hot issues in your community or on the news right now? Class members brainstorm and assume the roles of various stakeholders. They research and debate the question from that point of view. The class decides which case was better made. Links to resources outlining other debate formats are included.

Lesson Planet is a wonderful resource. I can easily search for lesson ideas and love the great printables. Lesson Planet has cut down on my planning time because I can usually find tried and true lessons on any subject. Why reinvent the wheel?
