Westview's 7th Graders Complete a Successful Great Debate

Westview Middle School's annual Great Debate is a project based learning activity that involves students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members. The activity provides students with an opportunity to have their voices heard on important issues facing our community, state, and nation.

On April 20th, Westview's Great Debate featured 7th grade students debating the topic of school safety. Students were separated into Pro's vs. Con's groups and asked to provide their case on if schools in America have what they need to keep students safe.

The event began with students providing their opening arguments in front of a panel of judges and other 7th graders assembled in the media center. Judges gave critiques of students' arguments, while students were given the opportunity to agree or disagree utilizing an online poll. 

After their opening arguments, the debate proceeded to a lightning round where students provided quick opinions and rebuttals on the issue. The lightning round also provided audience members a chance to argue random topics and learn the essence of a professional and productive debate.  

A special thanks to Westview 7th Grade ELA teacher Joey Giles on organizing this successful project-based learning experience for his students!
