We will look at posting the debates either in whole or part online as a number of people have requested. I will be sending a permission form to parents early next week.
In preparation for our debates, we watched The Great Debaters, a movie with Denzel Washington. One of the students suggested that I post the following clip from the movie (about 1 minute long). I used the idea from this clip to talk about “Who’s the judge?” when it comes to their work in class – they are!
