Event description


Hear from our 2017 great debate contest winner! Listen to Bob talk how you can set up a debate in your classroom and get students practicing finding evidence to support their claims and defend their reasoning.

Tips for setting up the debate:

  • Share the debate question, and divide students into “pro” and “con” teams.

  • Give each team an opportunity to brainstorm and research supporting ideas.

  • Time to debate!

Hear tips on how to facilitate engaging and thought-provoking debates inspired by Listenwise stories.
