Debate Collaboration

Over the past two weeks my students have been working in 2-3 person teams to prepare a Lincoln Douglas debate. Topics were student-chosen, and each team will face another team on debate day.

Students having iPads at hand was so efficient because they were able to electronically collect and save resource material on their own iPad for use in their debate outline.

Students have moved now to collaboratively writing their speeches using and sharing Google docs. Teams cluster around a table and, as they write, they are also reflecting about word choice, sentence structure, and, more importantly, relevance and strength of evidence.
