        Debate | Teaching Multicultural Literature Workshop 7: Social Justice and Action

        This teacher's guide details how debate can be used in any classroom. As students identify, research, and argue about complex ideas, they hone their skills in critical thinking, organization, persuasion, public speaking, research, and teamwork. Educator Laura Alvarez uses a style of debate that suits her students: as transitional-bilingual fourth and fifth graders from immigrant families, they have a strong stake in the issues but need support in reading, writing, speaking, and listening in English.
