Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Introduction to Debates - Section 1: Lesson Opener


When introducing a lesson to my students, I believe it is so important to give them an example of the end product. I want them to have a great debate, but I really want them to concentrate on great introductions. This is something they are lacking in their essay writing so far, so for them to see great speeches, gives them an example of how to creatively introduce a topic. I am hoping this transfer to better writing. As our trainer Cornelius Minor says, "If they can say it, then they can write it (and vice versa)."
