In this segment, the students in Ms. Melissa Yennie’s 5th grade health class at Expeditionary Learning Academy at Moylan School in Hartford, Connecticut, engage in a formal debate about whether or not parents should be held responsible when their children bully others.

Within the debate process, students:

  • Analyze pieces of evidence and sources to support points of debate
  • Assess peers based on outlined criteria
  • Participate in a post-debate discussion of things that went well and things that could’ve gone better

This lesson aligns to standards L.5.6, SL.5.1a-d, 4 & 6.
