Day 1: Break the Resolution
Step 1: Pick Key Ideas
Ask your question
Set one “background” article
Day 3: Frame an argument
Look at your PRO/CON, then set the questions you would have to ask yourself.
Create contention areas (almost always economic impact)
Create outline (USE MY TEMPLATE from “CONVERSATIONS”)
As Word Doc
“Conversations” is in “Homan Debate” “Classroom” inside your Office 365—the leaf
Day 2&3: SHARE RESOURCES
You can work as a team, you can work individually.
The document will be part of the “packet”
Start Pro/Con Lists
Resolved: The United States should no longer pressure Israel to work toward a two-state solution.
We SHOULD NOT pressure
LEAVE THEM ALONE
LET THEM DO WHAT THEY WANT
THEY CAN HAVE ONE STATE
We SHOULD CONTINUE to put pressure on Israel
KEEP DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING
A TWO STATE SOLUTION IS BEST
Us pressuring is causing problems?
What has our “pressure” been?
Are other countries mad at us for being involved?
Are we involved?
How much have we spent?
How long have we been involved?
If they have one state, why is that good?
Who wants us to keep putting pressure on them (Israel)?
What are their reasons?
Is there a reason that the pressure is benefitting us in some way?
A two state is good for us because?
Historically, “Two states” has worked?
Again—why do we get any opinion?
Develop Contention Areas
Practicality (match rest)
War is good for us
Open word document
“SHARE” with the kids on your team
As you find documents that work, add yours to the master list—PUT YOUR INITIALS
LABEL WHY YOU WOULD USE
“Economic Impact—data supports…”
