UNIT: CLIMATE CHANGE

TOPIC:  COST OF CLIMATE CHANGE 


LEARNING TARGETS:
  1. I can explain the pros and cons of aggressively confronting climate change 

EVIDENCE OF LEARNING: 

Students will be able to engage in prolong debate give and take on the issue of tackling climate change, providing accurate evidence and sound reasoning. 



STATE STANDARDS: 

CG2

COMMON CORE: 

Speaking and Listening Standards

1. Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-

one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 11-12 topics,

texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly and

persuasively.


REMINDERS: 

  • Debate and paper will now be due TOMORROW



LESSON:
1.  In teams students will organize their arguments and practice their opening statements for the debate exercise.  Each group should practice their opening and coordinate their positions.  Then arguments should be shared and coordinated.  Lastly consider the closing statement.  
To review the format of the debate: 
  • each presenter will open with a one-minute opening position 
  • secondly each side will be allowed to question the other side: it is required that each panelist will have at least two questions for the other side and should respond to their answers; hopefully you will be able to engage in refutations at this stage
  • lastly side will compose a closing statement that will come from a shared Google document.  You will have approximately 7-8 minutes to compose a statement that will be read by a panelist of the group's choice 

With these considerations in mind, you have much to prepare for tomorrow.  


HOMEWORK:
Continue any additional work in preparation for tomorrow's activities.
