Ready-to-use, thought-provoking debates
EASY DEBATES FOR THE ECONOMICS CLASSROOM
By Caleb Sanders. Frame key economics topics in a ready-to-use debate format that is fun, challenging, and instructive. Step-by-step directions introduce three different debating styles—the basic team vs. team debate, the multiple team debate (in which teams debate open-ended rather than yes-or-no questions), and the teacher vs. student debate—and offer ideas on how to expand, extend, and adapt each debate. The book also includes a scoring rubric, a sequence and timing summary, helpful hints, and follow-up questions. Sample debates: "Should the minimum wage be increased?", "Is it better to be self-sufficient or specialized?", and "What is government's role in wealth distribution?" Grades 7–12.
