Reflection: Performance Tasks Town Hall Debate - Are you a Loyalist or Patriot? - Section 4: Town Hall!


Instead of doing two smaller debates, we had one large one.  The debate lasted about 30 minutes and scholars became much more heated than normal!  It was great to hear everyone participate and to see the dynamic when scholars had a side that they must argue.  I also think that the research and opinion piece that led up to the debate helped the discussion to be a bit more heated than usual.  Scholars spent a few days researching so they had lots of support for their opinions.
