Claim, Evidence, Reasoning: Using Debates to Teach Evidence-based Reasoning
March 3, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST$45.00
(W Mar 3, 1-2:30pm Eastern StandardTime)
Debates are an exciting way to engage your students as an introduction to content, an in-depth exploration of the nuances, or an assessment of understanding. The peer interactions of this learning format motivate students to use research skills and hone communication skills. In this 1.5 hr. workshop, teachers will participate in a debate in an asynchronous platform (such as Google Classroom) and in a synchronous video meeting (such as Zoom). We will use a topic that allows teachers of any subject area to join in making claims supported with evidence and reasoning. The techniques taught in this workshop can be utilized in either a remote or in-person classroom.
