Short Session Description (one line): Getting students to perform an informed debate.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Fluency is the big issue that I would like to tackle. According to my experience, students perform better when they had time and to read about what they have to talk; like any of us, we can only give an opinion if we had read and had the time to be informed.
My goal is to help students to prepare themselves to debate about issues by researching about the topic online so they can write their arguments. I will set up an Edmodo class to provide them with links to relevant websites, written materials and videos. Once they read and write, their arguments will be first peer corrected and then I will make final corrections. Students will later record their arguments online, and we will follow the same procedure as with the written arguments using an online recording tool. Finally, they will debate in the classroom.
