Students will spend the rest of the class period formulating ideas. Students will be placed into groups based on their topics. The purpose is so that students are able to brainstorm and develop topics that are not repetitive. What do I mean by repetitive? If Jonathan and Casey both have the topic, Physical education should be mandatory in schools, then they should have eight different reasons why. The reasons should not repeat!
All students should have some ideas written down before leaving class. Homework: Complete research on your topics
