8th Grade Environmental Debates

debate  2141Over two days, through six class periods, the points and counterpoints resounded as Emerson science students argued environmental issues.  Resolved: US nuclear power plants should be doubled. China’s one family – one child policy should be continued. Michigan deer hunting and Pacific Northwest logging should be banned.  Welcome to the Eighth Grade Great Environmental Debates!

Students selected topics and teams, and followed debating rules of conduct to ardently argue the affirmative or negative position.

Take a bow at the podium, science teacher Michael Wilson, for a lively learning experience!
