Debates in Grade 5 & 6

For the last two months, our Grade 5 and 6 students have been working together to consider different sides of current issues. They develop a position concerning topics like family dynamics, the effects of technology on society, our environmental impact, and how to create change. Students then take turns debating an issue and deciding whether they have changed their mind or remain firm in their stance. Thinking critically from different viewpoints and expressing oneself in front of others are important parts of students’ development into global citizens.
