Harness Debate for Argument Writing

Teachers of Grades 6-9

July 29 - August 1 - 9:00am - 3:15pm daily

Class debates are an exceptional means for building student engagement and critical thinking, yet it is not uncommon to find little transfer of such passion and heavy cognitive lifting to students’ writing. In this workshop, we will explore how to harness the energy from debate into argumentative writing! We will discuss the role of oral rehearsal and listening groups and plan with these strategies and others in mind. We will think deeply together and try out the type of writing we’d love to read (and grade) from our students!
