Class Debates Weekly combines a unique format of classroom debate with a weekly resource based on a topical item from the news. Our debating system is totally inclusive – there’s no need for formal debating skills and there are no winners or losers.
We tackle society’s most important contemporary issues and give your students the skills to critically engage in democratic discussion. This week’s edition of Class Debates Weekly focuses on the imminent UK General Election, and whether or not the predictions of the pollsters can be trusted.
Our resources are designed to be flexible. They’re effective with secondary school students of all ages and abilities. They can be used during form time as part of Citizenship, SMSC and PSHE programmes. They’re also easily integrated into curricular schemes of work, e.g. in English, History, Politics, Media Studies and Philosophy & Ethics.
