Two new debate topics have just been added to The World Almanac® for Kids’ Take a Stand module:
- Should the Voting Age Be Lowered to 16?
- Should Schools Still Have Summer Breaks?
The Take a Stand module offers students and educators an opportunity to explore how to make an argument, back it up with facts, apply critical-thinking skills, and finally take a stand. The section for each debate topic covers the topic’s background, the supporters’ argument, the opponents’ argument, and a “Your Turn” section with downloadable PDF worksheets to help students frame their arguments. Other topics covered in Take a Stand include “Should Students Have Homework?” and “Should Schools Start Later in the Morning?”
