Want to get your students discussing and debating math?! Debate has often been a staple of the humanities classroom, and now you can bring it into your math class! Studies have shown that incorporating debate into the curriculum can significantly increase student achievement and engagement, increasing grades and test scores. Furthermore, the Common Core Standards emphasize "constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others," skills involved with debate! So, come explore several debate and discussion activities, both oral and written, that will help you bring this excitement to your classroom. We will actively experiment with several structures and activities, with concrete examples for all grade levels. Join NYC teacher Chris Luzniak (@pispeak) as we work together to discuss, develop, and debate classroom activities we can all use!
