Debating an issue
Class Four are starting to write a discussion text. In order to reflect on different opinions we decided to have a debate. The question given was: Should we ban plastic?
Using the debate mate games, where do you stand and the PEEL game, we had to devise arguments for and against the question.
PEEL stands for Point, Explanation, Example, Link back. The children understood that for there to be a balanced debate, they needed to express all four of these things in their argument.
