Description

Up for Debate! Building Debate Routines in STEM Classrooms (LA)

Debate and classroom discussion have often been staples of the humanities classroom. However, research informs us that classroom conversations are crucial for student learning for all subjects. Debate activities are known to increase student achievement and understanding, and the Common Core Standards for Math and Next Generation Science Standards encourage students to make and defend their claims. Thus, students need to discuss and debate in science and math class. Let’s explore ways to make it a part of your classroom culture!

In this interactive day, you will experience ways to incorporate debate into everyday math and science lessons, from warm up routines to classroom activities to summative assessments. We will start by learning some simple structures and routines for creating a classroom culture where students are empowered to discuss and debate math and science. Then, we will build on these structures to create classroom activities--small and large--that engage students of all levels. Come ready to argue, scowl and show off your debating skills!

This workshop is aimed at upper elementary, middle, and high school math, science, and technology teachers.
